However, recent studies tend to focus on the presentation of newly-(re)discovered rock art scenes and sites. In-depth presentations are both infrequent and mostly restricted to rock art itself.

God and other invisible relatives in Old Bank (Bocas del Toro, Panamá) In multiple traditions of Old Bank, an island village, situated off the Atlantic coast of Panama, relationships with relatives - which are associated to the presence of god, sorceres and spirits - come to light.
