Gobabis - Savuti
The Bushman paintings at Gobabis are situated on the eastern face of Bushman Hill (also known as Gobabis). The paintings, not carbon dated, are thought to be between 3000 to 4000 years old. They depict various animals of present and past Savuti vintage. Eland, elephant, sable, giraffe, a puffadder and a hippo from wetter times feature on the same panel.
A mixture of plant juices, and animal fat coloured with the rusty ironoxide from the rocks, was used to create this incredibly durable paint, but its exact composition is unknown. There are 22 known sites of paintings around Savuti, most being very faint due to exposure to the elements.
