4,000 year old rock art from Mongolia
4000-year-old rock art discovered in Mongolia
Eighteen rock art sites dating back over 4,000 years have been
discovered by archaeologists in northern China's Inner Mongolia
autonomous region. The prehistoric art was discovered in the Yinshan
Mountains in Urad Middle Banner (an administration division of the Inner
Mongolia Autonomous Region), said Liu Binjie, head of the Cultural
Relics Bureau of Urad Middle Banner.
Can a Chinese reader dig up some pictures of these faces? I've seen a
few stories about these discoveries in various outlets, but only a very
small picture as of yet. This has some information on the Rock Painting of Yinshan Mountains. Also: The Rock Art of Inner Mongolia & Ningxia (China).
Liu said that carvings of faces found on Yinshan Mountains cliffs are
similar to those in the Helan Mountains, located on the boundary
between Ningxia and Inner Mongolia. They are also similar to those in
eastern Russia, showing close connections with ancient peoples'
migration patterns, showing similar worship ceremonies.
