Decorated handprints are one of the enigmatic images of the southern zone.

It is now thought that Khoi herders made them and not San hunter-gathers.

Although they are images in a sense, it is now believed that such decorated handprints may be more concerned with touching the rock surface than with intentional efforts to create an image.

It is thought that they are the residual markings of rituals that involved contacting the spirit-world behind the rock surface.
