Abstract:

The aim of this paper is to outline the interrelation between archaeological and ethnographical ways of „reading" rock art. In the history of this discourse two stages can be pointed out. First, connected with applying the structural methodology by archaeologists, showed that rock images can be perceived as an organised system, at least on the syntagmatic level, conveyinga given message. At the same time, however, by rejecting ethnographic perspectives it reduced the rock art grammar to linearity and two-dimensionality. The new tern of attentions to ethnography showed that „reading" should be understood mainly as a symbolic discourse where the crucial role to understand the message is metaphorical character of images. Thisapproach revealed also the importance of not only images but also the rock surface, which, especially in shamanic contexts, can create the third dimension of the rock art „text". Thus, the ethnographical perspective is one of stimulators of interpretative pluralism in the field of reading rock art
