In the fall of 2020 I published two short papers (see below) in which I criticise the unprofessional and intolerable use and publication of fabricated photographs of rock art images in Arequipa, Peru. Not only the photographs are deceitful, also the conclusions based on those false photos are unreliable, as I demonstrate in the two papers below.

Van Hoek, M. 2020. False Information Concerning Majes Rock Art, Peru. In: TRACCE - Online Rock Art Bulletin, Italy.

Van Hoek, M. 2020. Enfrentando los dibujos... ¡otra vez! (Perú); Confronting the Drawings ... Again! (Peru). In: TRACCE - Online Rock Art Bulletin, Italy.


Van Hoek, M. 2020. Rock Art Images Wrapped Around the Corner - The Three Rivers 3D Masks. In: TRACCE - Online Rock Art Bulletin, Italy.

This paper deals mainly with rock art images of masks that are folded across two rock panels creating 3D masks. In particular the Mogollon 3D masks of Three Rivers in New Mexico, USA, will be discussed. Also the puzzling anomaly regarding the distribution of Mogollon 3D masks and Rio Grande Style 3D masks will be dealt with. Finally, it will be attempted to offer an explanation for the enigmatic 3D masks.

Van Hoek, M. 2020. The Book of Los Boliches. A Petroglyph Site in Northern Peru. Oisterwijk, Holland. Available only as PDF at ResearchGate.

It concerns a mainly photographic presentation of the petroglyphs at Quebrada de los Boliches, a major petroglyph site in the north of Peru, surveyed by us in 2011. The study offers a short description (including 5 maps) and briefly reviews the history of the site, while about 109 panels (on 69 boulders with petroglyphs) are illustrated in a total of 126 Figures. Accompanying this study is a short video about the rock art at Quebrada de los Boliches, stressing the fact that this endangered site should be officially protected (available at YouTube https://youtu.be/zlkZLnEZ2CM).

Van Hoek, M. 2020. The Book of Janus. Polycephalic Creatures in Rock Art. Oisterwijk, Holland. Available only as PDF at ResearchGate.

Besides a tour along the many examples of polycephalic biomorphs found at rock art sites across the globe, the book also offers a special Case Study involving a most specific bicephalic anthropomorphic figure from the west of North America. The book has 147 pages, including an extensive list of references and list of Figures (plus the full captions). Included are 120 numbered illustrations (colour photographs and drawings) comprising altogether 350+ illustrated examples of petroglyphs, pictographs (and even a few geoglyphs) that seem to involve polycephaly. Several other rock art examples are only mentioned; not illustrated.
