Such emanata are often aptly named banderoles and signify yet another way in which speech was now turning away from religious iconography and becoming more commonly represented as a secular and political means of expression. The Invention of Caricature Evidence of satirical drawings, especially animals foolishly acting like people, have appeared from at least the time of the ancient Egyptians; but the wide popular enjoyment of grotesque and distorted portraits, exemplified by the term ‘‘caricature,’’ is a uniquely modern phenomenon.

Interpreting biographic rock art was largely made possible by interest in more contemporary Native American works on paper and hides. Collectively called robe and ledger art, these works were traded and sold to tourists, but they also appeared as one of the last ways the Native Americans had to communicate their stories after they had been driven from their ancestral homelands.
