Abstract: 

In Saravan and Nahouk, is valleys and mountains full of animal motifs, including goat, horse, camel, cats, and rodents which have been drawn delicately and naturalistically, Human motifs that demonstrate the development of hunting and clothing culture, botanical motifs that belong to later periods and are being related to Zoroastrians, and symbolic motifs including winged man, and cup-mark devices which have been used for chronometry. Some motifs, for instance the goat, has been considered as a totem and even today the inhabitants of this region pay special attention to this animal and are eager to keep it in their houses, they believe this animal bring felicity to the house and is the best companion to lonely people. Do these motifs have been drawn by Paleolithic and Neolithic hunters in different periods of time? And has been related to hunting and worshiping rituals? The aim of this research is to study and introduce the rock-arts found in the Nahouk region in Saravan and to investigate the reasons why primitive people of that period have created these motifs, and how these motifs make their way to the lives of present inhabitants of the region. My methodology was field research and observation, and interviewing and I approached these materials with the help of Young's theory of Archetypes and Campbell's views about mythology. This research introduces rock-paintings of different regions of Saravan.
