How else to explain the long and painstaking work by knocking out or cutting of the veins in the rock deep furrows, and then carefully polished cleaved many places. More recent figures are not different so meticulous thoroughness and generally more lumpy and tough to execute. The meaning of the depicted in them did not carry the special emphasis, as they were applied, most likely, as a tribute to the more advanced time series of continuing intellectual development of man.

The symbols and signs began to appear, weighed down by the knowledge of the outside world. And for their explanations have been invented paper.

But modern chroniclers, generally are vandals, than, friends and lovers, with which they wanted to be, judging by their inscriptions.
