Description in published source : "PLATE 56
LOCALITY.– Cave on a farm Boomplaats, near Kornet Spruit. Owner, Mr. W. Higgs.
SITE.– Boomplaats lies on the right bank of the Kornet Spruit. The cave is above fifteen minutes’ walk below the house and overlooks the broad valley through which the river flows at some distance.
DESCRIPTION.– There are numbers of paintings in this cave and many superpositions. In one part there is a saucer-like hollow, in which all these bucks save the two top left ones are to be found. The red men and dots are on the edge of the basin, the two other elands are to the left of it, part of a large panel of bucks. The elands in the hollow are clearly one group with intentional superpositions.
Dimensions: 22 1/2 x 33 3/4 inches." (Bleek)
