St Marc below Ste Catherine

22 November 2009

“Animals in art do not provide a window to the world but a selection from the world … that tells us as much about human societies and human concerns as about the animals themselves.”

Howard Morphy, ed., Animals into Art

These pigeon tracks are somewhat indistinct especially overshadowed by the very bold dog (and human) tracks just beside them.
There are two sets moving in opposite directions. One pigeon or two?

long view at St Marc below Ste Catherine

The dog tracks dominate, but if you look closely, there are human tracks (smooth soles, male), and two main sets of pigeon tracks.
