Twenty-two papers from the 1986 Southampton World Archaeological Congress examining the role of animals in primitive art, from anthropological and archaeological sources. Identification and Presentation (a representation) are the first theories; then the papers look work on Composition of Scenes and in their Interpretation and Symbolic Meaning. A very wide ranging book with lots of drawings and lots of photos, many in colour.
