Description in published source : “PLATE 50
LOCALITY.– Cave near waterfall on farm Pietersberg, Genaadeberg. Owner, Mr. Kohlberg.
SITE. – The waterfall is about half-way up the mountain on the boundaries of the farms Pietersberg and Dubbeldraai. The shelter with paintings is just beyond the waterfall, between it and a place where huge blocks of rock have been dislodged by lightning.
DESCRIPTION.– As is usually the case where the site is at any height there are not many paintings, just two panels. On one the figures copied here are dotted about rather farther from each other than shown. The superpositions are correct. The white paint has almost disappeared. The blotches indicate spots where flakes of rock have fallen.
EXPLANATION BY A BUSHMAN.– ‘A sorcerer’s thing (said of the white path-like appearance). Men in the middle and two women at the bottom of the picture. The figure with animal’s head said to be the female Mantis.’
Similar figures to the central one appear in Plates 63 and 71.
Dimensions: 17 x 22 inches.” (Bleek)
