Summary

The Central Brazil has a large number of rock art sites, with remarkable stylistic variability. Trying to understand such variability, the Brazilian archaeologists proposed chrono-stylistic units to analyse the stylistic changes in diferent regions. In some specific areas, the studies of stylistic changes led us to perceveing another dimension of that variability: the diachronical interactions. This presentation tries to highlight specific behavior of new paintings, when they reoccupy rock walls that are already occupied by earlier paintings, in two areas where Federal University of Minas Gerais has been conducted archaeological research, in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
