Yes indeed, I can accept that, but it does rule out a lot of things that dont change much - stars and springs for instance.

But there's a fifth dimension on many panels too. It can be seen in the fact that some older motifs appear to be vandalistically overwritten by newer ones. In other words, there's a "respect" dimension - the meaning and importance of the marks appears to change over time, i.e. half the marks we see cant possibly be connected in time or intention to the other half.

They may be trying to get rid of something that was once in the landscape but has now gone.
