The Indalo                 Indalo Sign

What does this sign or emblem mean?

This Neolithic figure – which represents a man holding a rainbow – first appeared in the Cave of Los Letreros in Velez Blanco /Spain which suggests that it is prehistoric in origin.

The villagers of Mojacar/Spain regard it as totem to drive away storms – a spirit with sufficent power to dominate the elements.

It seems that prehistoric peoples from interior of the province ( Velez Blanco, Cave of Los Letreros, Cave of Ambrosio ) moved to the coastal regions and brought their beliefs with them. Mojacar is the most Archaic town within this area and has conserved ist traditions, one of these being the indalo.

The Iberians of the south – east called their „lord almighty" or „ god" by the name of Indalo. The Iberian word INDA means powerful or strong and brave leaders were called IND-IBIL, IND – ORTES, etc.

In Basque language, there are words like „indartzu", strong and „indarchum", powerful. (1.)

The philosopher Eugenio D’Ors sums up this yearning for the infinite that is characteristic of the

Restless Indalien spirit: „It springs from prehistory and stretches into eternity".

Carlos Almendros
