Until recently, the rock art of the Groot Winterhoek Mountains in the southern Cape near Port Elizabeth has remained largely unexplored. In 2013 Ghilraen Laue commenced a project to record and interpret this art with the objective of understanding regional differences in hunter-gatherer rock art in southern Africa. So far, 40 sites have been recorded; ongoing field work suggests that many more sites will be added to this total. At first glance, the imagery looks different from the paintings found in the Drakensberg. Close analysis of the images, however, shows that the underlying symbolism is similar and points to a widely shared worldview amongst the painters across the sub-continent.
