I often see rock art explained as religious icons or magic. It often seems that it may just be an artist depicting scenes of daily life as it was then.
Things like the Labyrinth and what I labeled the "Glyphs" could just be abstract art, while the village scene might have a title like "Autumn in """"" (insert village name).
The running man may be a depiction of the local Olympic Games from that time.
What do you think? Is every type of ancient art religious in function?
