Around 30,000 BP, Lake Humboldt in South America began to recede and a subaquatic wonderland emerged. By 10,000 BP hunter-fishers were living in caves at Facatativá in Colombia and using multicoloured paints made from plants, flowers and minerals, indigenous people emblazoned this entire sacred site with petrograms, geometric patterns and anthropomorphic forms. Ashley interprets the mysterious rock art, but knowing that ancient Andean cultures took their spiritual beliefs way beyond imagery, he reveals how the landscape was spiritualised and used in rituals and ceremonies.
