Abstract: The presented project Images in rock investigates the role of rock features in individual and social worlds of past and contemporary societies. They are often perceived as spiritual beings/ powers, their dwelling places or products (so called pseudo-artefacts). Their ability to attract attention and stimulate the imagination has been used in imagination survey aimed to gather drawings of respondents images. This paper presents a case study focused on a lydite rock feature within prehistoric hillfort at Tuhošť near Švihov (Klatovy district, West Bohemia, fig. 1). One hundred respondents externalized 122 motifs, which were analyzed and classifi ed into interpretation categories (humans, beings, animals, natural features/artefacts). Further, structural graphic features in pictures were searched and 50% of motifs were divided into 6 graphic groups (core imaginations; figure 4). It has been shown, that also rock feature diff erent from menhir-like stones resembling figure/body (e.g. Na Špičáku near Hroznětín, see Chroustovský 2010) or without apparent anthropomorphic head/face (see footnote 10) can represent important symbolic feature.
