And that fork like structure above the horses neck/head-is that a fork for catching horses-or an isometric representation of a stilt house?
You know, since you mention it SilconeSynapse,
It does indeed resemble a stilt house, doesn't it. I hadn't thought of that when i saw it.
Not sure about the plant's near the stomach conveying motion, although it might be. I see the lifted rear leg and dipped down head and shoulders as
being the motion indicator..i think they may represent arrows that missed the target, by way of explaining to other tribe members/hunters that these
animals are swift when they run, and are difficult to hit with arrows and spears.
Could the 'stilt house' fork like structure above the horse, be a way of compensating for the horses speed when hunting it?
The hunters of the time, may have been illustrating that because these beasts run so fast, and are difficult to hit with arrows, they had devised a
method of corralling them into a trap?
Maybe the fork like object above the horse is just such a trap, that consists of several spears, attached to a heavy weight, like a large log.
Suspended from above, it's released to drop and impale the horse from above, once it is herded into tight area?
Who knows...maybe it shows a house, and a domesticated horse, thousands of years earlier than we thought.
