Arabian Rock Art Heritage

The Application of Advanced Imaging Technology to Saudi Arabian Rock Art

Painted bull panel, Bir Hima

This excellent panel of petroglyphs was discovered on 24 January 2010 by Dr. Majeed Khan and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History team in the Bir Hima region of Saudi Arabia, in Najran Province. These are some of the best examples of horse petroglyphs in this area. Also notable are the large, distinctively ornamented images of cattle toward the right.

This panoramic is 108 photographs taken with the 14.6mp Canon Powershot G10, and is about 1440mb.
