Description in published source : “PLATE 65
LOCALITY.– As Plate 64. [Cave in precipitous ravine on van Niekerk’s Rus, Mill Spruit. Owner, Mr. Van Niekerk.]
SITE.– As Plate 64. [This farm lies about six miles from Rosendal high up on a hill overlooking the Mill Spruit. The cave is below the house about ten minutes’ walk distant, but far above the stream.]
DESCRIPTION.– This group is higher up on the rock than that of Plate 64, therefore it is less faded, but the white and vermilion paint have vanished and the lower right-hand man has been rubbed out.
EXPLANATION.– I think the animals are meant for wild boars.
Dimensions: 18 1/2 x 32 inches.” (Bleek)
