The Sorcerer is the therianthropic being at the top. It has anatomical characteristics of a number of creatures, including human, horse, bear, etc., and represent the shapeshifting which is a global phenomenon. The figure was painted on a cave in Trois-Frères, Ariège, France back around 15,000 years ago. The stick figures beneath are sourced from South African San paintings (at the Kondoa’s Kolo Site) and likely much older.
The ‘ropes’ are for climbing to the elevated state of consciousness which the Sorcerer represents.
the painting attempts to recreate a cave-like scene.
