Brandberg

 

The Brandberg is a granite mountain which surmounts its surroundings by about 2,000 meters. With an overall height of 2,573 meters it is the highest mountain in Namibia. It gets his name from the glowing colour when the setting sun shines spectacular on the red granite. This massif is covered by petroglyphs including the White Lady.

This petroglyph was baptized "White Lady" in 1955, as it resembles some petroglyphs of a white lady found in Greece/Crete. But today we know that it is a warrior or shaman.
