My version of the year 2011 in review: 23 October

I captured this image of old rock art, located at Mwitongo, Butiama on a granite rock face.
The lower left side shows two distinct animal figures, perhaps antelopes or giraffes. A circular image in the mid lower section could be a representation of the sun or moon.

A lecturer from the Archeology Unit of the University of Dar es Salaam who has seen these images has pointed out that they could be as old as 20,000 years.

Hi - Wonderful photo -this reminds me of rock art we saw while we were visiting. My partner Howard recounts seeing it at every social opportunity!
