Um dos aspetos mais interessantes nos variados estudos dos pigmentos utilizados para a realização de pinturas rupestres é a seleção e manipulação das matérias-primas. Para estes estu-dos têm que ser considerados os aspetos relacionados com a disponibilidade dos materiais geoló-gicos, os aspetos culturais e os aspetos relacionados com a preservação...

A importância das matérias-primas para a produção de pigmentos na arte rupestre está testemunhada, por exemplo, pela presença de minas de ocre documentadas na Pré-História (p. ex. LAROCCA 2008). O estudo das matérias-primas na arqueologia é necessariamente interdisciplinar, envolvendo as componentes físicas dos materiais e as componentes culturais...

Maltravieso cave (Estremadura, Spain) was recently the subject of ATR-FTIR spectroscopy of 8 figures (four hand stencils, a red horse figure, a black bull figure, a pair of black lines, and a pair of brown lines). These artistic representations are composed of different colors including red, brown, and black figures. The analyses showed that differ...
