Little systematic recording of rock art in the Koebee area of the western Cape has been undertaken. Data presented in this report derive from 50 sites. Humans are portrayed in restricted contexts and outnumber paintings of animal species. Paintings of animals are limited to a restricted range of species, of which the majority is antelope. Symbols, metaphors and postures associated with San rituals also occur. There are depictions of healing dances, fat tailed sheep and a complex 'fight' scene.
