Some stunning black and white rock art photos - with thanks to the Irish Rock Art facebook site.[...]ans-les-alpes-en-noir-et-blanc

The surface of these rocks has been dug holes in the form of cups (cups), sometimes interconnected by small channels. These stones with cups with evocative names, Roches with the fairies, Pierre with the immolés or even Dalle des Païens, are numerous in the Alps. They are often located in front of spectacular landscapes and they are sometimes the subject of legends.

If some see the representation of constellations, or the remains of an altar, or even the rocks with the sacrifices, it is impossible today to determine what their role was. It is all the more disturbing to see that this phenomenon also exists in Africa, in North and South America, in India and in many other countries.
