8-Mile-Long Canvas of 12.600-Year-Old Rock Art Discovered

A huge canvas of rock art that was painted around 12,600 years ago has been discovered in the Amazon Rainforest.

The rocky canvas does on for 8 miles or 13 kilometres on the hills above three rock shelters in the Colombian Amazon. The intricate art, drawn with red ochre is found at the archaeological site known as Serrania La Lindosa, which is found on the northern edge of the Colombian Amazon.


They date to the end of the last ice age, between 12,600 and 11,800 years ago, a time when the Amazon was still transforming into the tropical forest we know today.


There are literally thousands of ice age paintings that have been hidden for so long, including handprints, geometric designs and many animals including deer, bats, aligators, monkeys, turtles, snakes, porcupines, horses and three-toed hoofed mammals with trunks. Watch this short news story video now to learn more.
