The Old Castle of Jevišovice > Temporary exhibitions > Rock paintings

Rock paintings

The exhibition draws from the rich collection of rock art preserved in the Anthropos Institute of the Moravian Museum and gathered during the last four decades of the 20th century as a result of Prof. Jelínek's expeditions. The exhibition shows the replicas of 30 rock paintings and engravings.

The exhibition is divided into three parts:

  • cave paintings by Upper Palaeolithic hunters (Lascaux, Altamira)
  • rock paintings and engravings from Central Sahara (Fezzan in Libya and Tassili in Algeria)
  • rock paintings from North Australia (the members of the expedition could meet the authors of the art works and get to know both the technique and the mythology connected with the paintings)
