NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC Assignment SAHARA ROCK ART Team Effort to Save Africa's Ancient Art "Pure genius," says David Coul son, at near right, of the artist who some 7,500 years ago engraved an Algerian rock wall with a work called the "Crying Cows." For the past several years Coulson has photographed such art in many places across Africa. To preserve it, he set up the Trust for African Rock Art, working with Alec Campbell, at far right, founder of Botswana's National Museum. A Society grant helps support their efforts.
