The Origins Centre is preparing to launch a new wing in 2017, to exhibit priceless treasures that will enrich our understanding of the ancient art of the Khoi and San people. The wing houses a collection of engraved boulders brought from parts of North West province.

About 101 dolerite rocks, weighing 55 tons in total and mostly carrying depictions of wild animals, have been in storage for about 20 years. They were previously displayed outdoors at the Joburg Zoo’s Museum of South African Rock Art, established by the late Paul Friede.

Visitors will be able to take a guided tour of the engraved boulders, hosted by experts. Click here for all the details.
