For about 2,000 years the central character of
this Busman painting took safe shelter under a rocky overhang in the Brandberg's
Tsisab Gorge. During the first half of the twentieth century, there were several
over-enthusiastic, and ignorant photographers, who would spray water, and other
liquids onto the painting in an attempt to enhance the natural colours of the
figure, thus affording them a 'better' photograph. During the sixties an iron
protective cage was erected in front of the mural. The 'White Lady of Brandberg'
can now be viewed with the accompaniment of a trained Daures Guide.
