Lomar Engraved Rocks

Penafiel
Description
This center of engraved rocks includes nearly one hundred carvings of various motifs standing out from the ground. Among the represented symbols abound the pedomorfos, the fossettes, the halteriformes and the paracirculares. The true meaning of these artistic centers, as well as the symbolism of the represented motifs is unknown. The pedomorfos, for example, very common in this type of engraved rocks are usually interpreted as a schematic representation of the human foot, and may be associated with the idea of a route or walk. However, there are several interpretations that relate this schematic and abstract art not only with the sacredness of places, but also with the territorial delimitation and / or initiation rituals.
