Three moments of invocation

The Company

Representation of a skull of a male dog, adult and young, located in the grave of La Velilla (Osorno, Palencia) next to the remains of an adult woman. The burial belongs to the Chalcolithic period in the Iberian Peninsula. The largest dog bones filled the grave next to the remains of various domestic animals and the skull of another dog. The authors of this study* address the meaning of burial. 5000 - 4500 years ago.

The wait

Representation of two figures engraved in rock inside the cave stations of the Côa Valley (Portugal) and Siega Verde (Spain). The uro with wolf or dog inside belongs to the area of Siega Verde, Salamanca. Both on the banks of the river Côa and on the banks of the river Águeda are, today, the most important manifestations of Palaeolithic art in the open air of Southwest Europe. As they have been suitable areas for hunting, there are various hypotheses about the function of the engravings. 24000 - 12000 years ago.

The dark 

The use of fire by primates is a key step in the development of the species to which we belong. There is a gap of hundreds of thousands of years between the first evidence of manipulation and the control of the element. It was possibly the third source of light and heat known to those who preceded us. Of the multiple survival strategies attributed to the use of fire by primates, it is not unlikely that a burning desire impossible to satiate could be added. The same that our species tries to learn to control.
