28 - Lapas Cabreiras

Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo - Vale de Afonsinho

Chronology: Late Prehistory

Large granitic shelter, at the base of a rocky hill, over the vast platform where the Lapas Cabreiras settlement is located. On a side wall, facing a high a hard to accede platform, are some prehistoric schematic paintings. A few of the motifs are very effaced, but at least three different pigments can be distinguished: brigt-red, orange, and dark-red. There’s a large group of dots and bars, and at least two anthropomorphs, but it is the theme “hand” that dominates the composition. There are two representations of single hands, and one of the anthropomorphs displays its two large open hands.
