Abstract
Cupoles, circles and mandalas appear very early in the human graphic vocabulary. By examining their manifestation in a variety of prehistoric cultures beginning with the European Paleolithic, an attempt will be made to decode some of their multiple meanings. Statements will be assembled by individuals who are part of the ongoing ancient traditions some of whom continue to produce these forms into historical periods and even, in certain instances, into the present.
