In archaeology, rock art is human-made markings placed on natural stone; it is largely synonymous with parietal art. A global phenomenon, rock art is found in many culturally diverse regions of the world. It has been produced in many contexts throughout human history, although the majority of rock art that has been ethnographically recorded has been produced as a part of ritual. Such artworks are often divided into three forms: petroglyphs, which are carved into the rock surface, pictographs, which are painted onto the surface, and earth figures, formed on the ground. The oldest known rock art dates from the Upper Palaeolithic period, having been found in Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa. Archaeologists studying these artworks believe that they likely had magico-religious significance.

  • Een rotstekening is een getekende afbeelding op rotsen. Men kan hierbij twee grote groepen onderscheiden: * Tekeningen in grotten, deze zijn meestal met pigmenten vervaardigd * Tekeningen op rotsen in de open lucht, deze hebben meestal de vorm van petrogliefen

  • Una pintura rupestre es todo dibujo o boceto prehistórico que existe en algunas rocas o cavernas. El término «rupestre» deriva del latín rupestris, y éste de rupes (roca). De modo que, en un sentido estricto, rupestre haría referencia a actividad humana sobre las paredes de cavernas, covachas, abrigos rocosos e, incluso farallones o barrancos, entre otros. Desde este aspecto, es prácticamente imposible aislar las manifestaciones pictóricas de otras representaciones del arte prehistórico como los grabados, las esculturas y los petroglifos, grabados sobre piedra mediante percusión o erosión. Al estar protegidas de la erosión por la naturaleza del soporte, las pinturas rupestres han resistido el pasar de los siglos.
  • Felsbild ist der Oberbegriff für alle auf festem, das heißt „gewachsenem“ Fels von Menschen dargestellten Abbildungen oder Zeichen. Felsbilder sind Forschungsgegenstand der Archäologie und der Ethnologie.
  • Si definiscono pitture rupestri quelle pitture realizzate in una grotta o in muri di pietra o in soffitti, risalenti alla preistoria. Analoghe raffigurazioni sono state ottenute con l'incisione. Quando furono rinvenuti per la prima volta questi graffiti, alla metà del XIX secolo, essi vennero considerati primitivi, ma una recente rivalutazione e nuove scoperte ci hanno permesso di comprendere l'importanza dei lavori dell'Età della Pietra, che non sono solamente di alto livello artistico (essendo già presenti accenni di prospettiva, ombreggiatura e rilievo), ma costituiscono anche degli importanti indizi per una migliore conoscenza della cultura e delle credenze di quell'epoca.
  • L'expression « art rupestre » (du latin rupes, « roche ») désigne l'ensemble des œuvres d'art au sens large (sans appréciation esthétique) réalisées par l'Homme sur des rochers, le plus souvent en plein air. La plupart des auteurs l'opposent aujourd'hui à l'art pariétal (du latin parietalis, « relatif aux murs », art sur parois de grottes en intérieur), mais aussi à l'art mobilier (que l'on peut déplacer) et à l'art sur bloc. Cette forme d'art occupe une part majeure dans l'art préhistorique. Sa pratique est restée continue jusqu'à nos jours ; elle n'est pas le fruit d'une ethnie ou d'une culture particulière, mais est relativement universelle.
  • Arte rupestre é o termo que denomina as representações artísticas pré-históricas realizadas em paredes, tetos e outras superfícies de cavernas e abrigos rochosos, ou mesmo sobre superfícies rochosas ao ar livre. A arte rupestre divide-se em dois tipos: a pintura rupestre, composições realizadas com pigmentos, e a gravura rupestre, imagens gravadas em incisões na própria rocha.
