The Tin Newen paintings are very similar to Wan
Amil drawings, in that they are rich in social
scenes and activities; but with the addition
of tifinagh: the
name given to the Berber (or Tamazight) writing script,
which is also known as the Libyan Alphabet,
from its use in ancient Lybico-Berber inscriptions.
A busy composition showing various scence from everyday life, including a circle
of people in the middle, appearing to be chatting, while others holding their
bows and arrows.
A line of camels, symbols, and letters from the Berber alphabet Tifinagh,
which is still used today by the Sahara's Tuareg confederacies.
