The aptitude for symbolization, characteristic of man, is revealed not only in artistic
representations and funerary practices. It is exhibited by every manifestation of human
activity or representation of natural phenomena that assumes or refers to a meaning.We
can recognize functional symbolism (tool-making, habitative or food technology), social
symbolism, (language and social communication) and spiritual symbolism (funerary
practices and artistic expressions). On the basis of these concepts, research into symbolism
in prehistoric man allows us to recognize forms of symbolism already in the manifestations
of the most ancient humans, starting with Homo habilis (or rudolfensis).
Toolmaking, social organization and organization of the territory are oriented toward
survival and the life of the family group. They attest to symbolic behaviors and constitute
symbolic systems by means of which man expresses himself, lives and transmits his
symbolic world. The diverse forms of symbolism are discussed with reference to the different
phases of prehistoric humanity.
