'Jelínek J, 1985: Tilizahren, the Key Site of the Fezzanese Rock Art. Part II, Tilizahren East, Analyses, Discussion, Conclusions. Anthropologie (Brno) 23, 3: 223-275'.
This is the second part of the publication of Wadi Tilizahren rock art sites, namely of the three eastern galleries, followed by the analyses of the found engravings. The local Saharan origin of the domesticated catttle is proposed and the bull figures with short horizontally curved horns ("en tenaille") are recognized as wild buffaloes. The traditionally used relative chronology is questioned. The big Aethiopian fauna with bubalus is considered as decorative style, contemporary with "pastoral" rock art figures. The earliest pastoralists in Fezzan were earlier. Bovidians are considered as late pastorals. All these styles belong to the Neolithic period.
