Title: 011208CPJed MG 0660 - Bushman art in the Eastern Cape Drakensberg near Barkly East, South Africa
Description: Bushman painting of a lion in a Cave Sandstone rock overhang in the mountains at Balloch in the Eastern Cape Drakensberg near Barkly East, South Africa
This image is identified as a lion, but to me it is distinctly cheetah-like. The l-o-n-g tail gives it away.
I love this image, because it is SO reminiscent of last week's mountain lion rock shelter image. The two cats are almost identical literal mirror images of each other (this one facing right and last week's mountain lion facing left), although they are separated by an ocean and by a vast cultural divide.
In both cases we see the same lithe power and speed....and danger. These kitties were nothing to be trifled with.
