All images represented in these woodblock prints are from ancient matristic origin. The upper band dates to early 4th millennium, B.C… similar images have been found dating to 30,000 years ago. These engravings are found on stone columns, located off the coast of Brittany in passage grave shrines and also in grave shrines of Ireland and other countries. An obstacle to the study of this ancient culture has resulted from assumption that the culture would be a mirror image of our own. Researcher J.J Bachofen, of the 20th century stated, “the scholar must be able to renounce the ideas of his own time and transfer himself to the mid point of a completely different world of thought.” To admit this difference however, is difficult.
