About Game Pass Shelter at Kamberg
The rock art at Game Pass Shelter in the Kamberg region has been described as the Rosetta Stone of San Rock Art. This is due to the fact that these paintings served as the key to unlocking a clearer understanding of the art, chiefly their symbolism and their integral role in the spirituality of the San People. They were some of the first paintings to be known internationally.
