Escrito na Pedra: Cor, Forma e Movimento nos Grafismos Rupestres na Bahia offers the reader an overview of the until then unknown set of archeological sites distributed throughout the State of Bahia. The book was written by anthropologist Carlos Alberto Etchevarne. The researcher visited and analyzed 229 locales with paintings and engravings at a total of 100 sites distributed throughout 54 municipalities of the state.
The work is the result of the research project Homem e Natureza - Imagens da arte rupestre na Bahia ("Man and Nature – Images of Rock Art in Bahia”), which won the Clarival do Prado Valladares Award in 2006. In addition to the publication of the book, the Organization's sponsorship also allowed for the creation of a database for use by the researchers at the Federal University of Bahia Museum of Archeology and Ethnology.
