Beschrijving

A legacy of engravings on clay

Designated World Heritage in 2008

Discovered in 1953, it has various panels of macaroni-type engravings, made with the fingers on clay, with animals and non-figurative motifs. Over several different galleries, communicated via limestone chimneys, there are black paintings, representations of animals and quadrangular symbols. The only engraving that is not done using the macaroni technique is a bovine figure with short horns. Two of the figures (a deer and a symbol) are dated 13,940 and 15,070 BC respectively.
