The contribution examines nine representations of big-hands and big-feet figures recently discovered in the areas of Bèrg, Pòrtole (ex Caneva) and Ronchi d’Izir. Among them, subjects of particular importance are present: the first example in Valcamonica of a big-feet figure without the attribute of big-hands and a big-handed orant with body derived from a fracture in the rock. The paper will discuss the link with the natural environment, but also chronological and typological issues, associations and the possible ideological values of these representations.

Abstract

The contribution examines nine representations of big-hands and big-feet figures recently discovered in the areas of Bèrg, Pòrtole (ex Caneva) and Ronchi d’Izir. Among them, subjects of particular importance are present: the first example in Valcamonica of a big-feet figure without the attribute of big-hands and a big-handed orant with body derived from a fracture in the rock. The paper will discuss the link with the natural environment, but also chronological and typological issues, associations and the possible ideological values of these representations.
