Amazing Rock Art Site Discovery in Egypt

A Rock Art Site was discovered in Western Gilf Kebir in January 2003. This has become very popular among rock art enthusiasts as the paintings and engravings are well done and well preserved. It is a large semi circular shelter and is larger than Wadi Sora. Although it may take volumes to cover everything at this art site, these pictures have made a good job of showing what the place holds in store for you.
Art that includes negative handprints is one of the unique features of this site. Like in Wadi Sora, this site also has a few headless animals although their symbolism isn't very clear. They have a combination of paintings and engravings where the figures are drawn using a combination of these methods. The paintings and the art in general is very detailed and everything is very well sheltered.
