Round Headed Figures
The initial project has thus been carried out successfully, both as regards the moulding in 1999 (admittedly the most difficult part by far!) and the study of the petroglyphs in the near vicinity of the big giraffes which are thus put into their context.
 
In the weeks to come, we'll have the completed map and the sketches of a number of panels. We'll also work on the data base - for example on the techniques used, on the varnish, etc. As things stand we have more than enough material to realise the « glossy » book that had been decided last year and to start on a more extensive scientific book.

The material we have gathered (photos, sketches, maps, descriptions, tracings) also makes it possible to give a lot of in-depth information about Dabous on our web site, or again an exhibition about the work done and the results achieved if this were thought advisable. At the end of our field work at Dabous in 2000, I give my warmest thanks to the Bradshaw Foundation for having made possible this new and last campaign.
