dc.description.abstract The magisterial districts of Bethlehem, Ficksburg, Ladybrand, Rouxville, Smithfield and Zastron have a concentration of a particular image class known as the rain-animal. These hallucinatory animals are the expression of the Bushman cultural construction of rain and rain-making. The above magisterial districts contain a wide variety of different types of rain-animals in many different contexts. These contexts emphasise different aspects of rain-making beliefs. A thorough examination of these images promises to provide a comprehensive overview of the depiction of rain-animals and the beliefs they signify. en
