The report examines pre or proto-historic rock art from Valcamonica made with the both the filiform (scratched) and the polissoir techniques. The study herewith presented considered the entire corpus of incised engravings of Valcamonica and their complex relationship with pecked figures. It was thus possible to draw up a specific typology for incised rock art, which shows undeniable parallels with what is known for pecked rock art; moreover we were able to provide a dating for some of the analyzed filiform figures through the analysis of superimpositions and associations. The analysis of scenes and contexts also identified many panels with a ritual or symbolic value, which allow us to consider the technique of filiform engraving anything but secondary.

Abstract

The report examines pre or proto-historic rock art from Valcamonica made with the both the filiform (scratched) and the polissoir techniques. The study herewith presented considered the entire corpus of incised engravings of Valcamonica and their complex relationship with pecked figures. It was thus possible to draw up a specific typology for incised rock art, which shows undeniable parallels with what is known for pecked rock art; moreover we were able to provide a dating for some of the analyzed filiform figures through the analysis of superimpositions and associations. The analysis of scenes and contexts also identified many panels with a ritual or symbolic value, which allow us to consider the technique of filiform engraving anything but secondary.
