Catshaman's link-node II

My choice try to cover rock art, ritual astronomy and associated areas. Often the links leads to other links and it is difficult to overlook. Some of the links go to areas with odd languages, but you have still the pictures to look at if you are interested. All the links are pasted. Sorry there is no order. If you have suggestions in making this a good node on subject LINKS.
