About Rock Art @ the National Museum

The Rock Art Department at the National Museum Bloemfontein is a fascinating visual feast. Rock art is imagery that has either been engraved into, painted on or sculpted out of the surface of a rock. This art form depicts a story of history and tells the tale of its maker – who they were, what they did and what they thought – think of it as the yesteryear Facebook.

South Africa has a variety of rock art traditions namely those from Bantu-speaking farmers, herders and hunter-gathers. The study of this art is important because it allows a better understanding of the land we live in. The Rock Art Department explores all of these factors and you will discover the wealth of both knowledge and history when you visit.
