Palimpsest rock art of the 'Chufu' region in the Egyptian Western Desert, as an ongoing cultural process of interactions

Rock art palimpsest in the Chufu region, Egyptian western Desert, comprises diverse images where people involve themselves in a form of dialogue. these dialogues do not occur every time, but only with selective images. So, rock art served as a communicative bridge that facilitates dialogues with those who came before. The palimpsests can be singular, where the same act is repeated, or they can be multiple, where different figures were added. This research aims to trace the past activities in rock art to illuminate how rock art played a significant role in initiating direct or/and indirect conversations such as how different social media platforms work nowadays.
