Description in published source : “PLATE 29
LOCALITY.– As Plate 28.
SITE. – Next to the little rock-shelter is a long shelter with numbers of paintings and numerous superpositions. Water is spoiling one part.
DESCRIPTION.– The group copied here and some yellow men and Basuto shields are on a slab of rock superimposed on old black paintings. I think the figures in the upper layer are all of one date.
EXPLANATION.– This may be a dance or the doings of medicine men. In another Bushman tribe I have seen dots of white ash similar to those on the two tall men dabbed on by medicine women before uttering incantations. The five yellow men have small karosses.
Dimensions: 12 x 18 inches.” (Bleek)
