Borneo’s squatter man

More ancient Squatter Man cave art images, this time in Borneo. Why such a distinctive body but ethereal head if these represent human figures?

Paint it black. Or purple

Cave art in East Kalimantan can be grouped into three distinct phases. The oldest includes the reddish-orange hand stencils and animal paintings that mostly appear to depict Bornean banteng, the wild cattle still found on the island. The next phase consists of younger hand stencils, intricate motifs and symbols, and depictions of elegant, thread-like people, some wearing elaborate headdresses, some apparently dancing, painted in dark purple or mulberry on the cave walls. In the final phase are more recent paintings of people, boats and geometric designs, all rendered in black.

Other squatter man petroglyphs and pre historic cave paintings from around the world show defined bodies but strange heads/skulls. Is this because the main plasma structure (Peratt Instability and in these cases Peratt Columns) was relatively stable over periods of time but the 'top' section was not visible or kept changing? Why the heads of these are shown with hands, ducks and other strange shapes?

The second phase of painting in the cave is characterised by the use of purple-coloured paint, and dates to between 16,000 and 21,000 years ago. This phase includes some apparent depictions of humans.

Maxime Aubert said: "It looks like there was a transition from depicting the animal world to [depicting] the human world. And it's interesting because I think we have the same thing in Europe."

As the plasma filaments evolved did the visual shapes change and so what was drawn also varied over time? The plasma discharge would also change and there would be a period when it was radiating intense synchrotron radiation, would this be when petroglyph's also changed to be chipped as mainly one colour.

Dating competition

Paul Pettitt, professor of palaeolithic archaeology at Durham University, said that “at face value” the results point to a similar pattern for the development of art at two extremes of Eurasia more than 40,000 years ago.

But he is cautious about the dating in the latest study. “Sadly, this work says more about academic competition and the scramble for early dates than it does the emergence of art,” he said. “I welcome the impressive discovery and documentation of a major early art region, but I have considerable reservations about the pertinence of the dated samples to the art beneath. It is not made clear that the oldest minimum ages are clearly and unambiguously related to the figurative art.”

Why are these ochre rock art drawings found hidden away in a cave? Was it a safe place to work away from the deadly electromagnetic radiation being created by the tower squatting man or squatting god in the sky?
