The study presents a selection of prehistoric painted rock art from 45 archaeological caves, rock shelters and rock walls of 26 regions located in the provinces of Neuquen, Rio Negro, Chabut, Santa Cruz, and Mendoza in Argentina as well as from the region of the Rio Chico in Chile. Texts analyze the aspects of the everyday life of the ancient hunter-collector inhabitants with colored images that reflect their intimate relationship with the fauna, the flora and the environment combined with geometric symbols and painted hands as representations of their thoughts, fears and deceptions. Each entry includes location and chronological data. ENGLISH AND SPANISH TEXT.
