The dancer is probably a shaman and the repetitive mushroom symbols hallucinogenic mushrooms.

In Europe, an effigy of a mushroom, not unlike Amanita, inserted in a scene with shamanistic connotations, has been found in a rock engraving of Mount Bego, France, dating back to 1800 B.C. Further important archaeoethnomycological documentation is to be found in ancient Greek culture.
