Felsbilder Ägyptens

Zeichen einer sozialisierten Landschaft

Egyptian rock art has a problem regarding its secure dating and its cultural contextualization. Therefore, in this dissertation an approach is chosen, based on a spatial analysis and considering the use of the rock images as signs in a communication process. Rock art of the Central Eastern Desert and Wadi Berber in Aswan was chosen as case studies. The spatial analysis includes the contextual embedding in the reconstructed natural landscape and the concrete socio-economically used places. The semiotic approach examines the rock art as signs within a system of graphic information processing in order to approximate the functioning of the images.
