Battle Cave

Battle Cave bushman painting 1This cave is located in the Injasuthi (translated as valley of the well-fed dog) valley and is a 5-hour hike from the Injasuthi camp. The cave is fenced so cannot be accessed without a guide.

Interpretation: The human figures appear to be arranged in a composition that suggests a fight. Some figures have arrows notched to their bows, others have spears that they point in the direction of the foe. Arrows and arrow-like flecks surround the figures. One figure walks away, removing an arrow from his arm.
