Stunning and fascinating images.
you have to wonder what went on in those caves - tomb/temple/divination site?
slightly depressing that they have to seal the sites after excavation but i suppose its the only way to keep them unmolested.
They really should rig up a website virtual 3D tour to show what they found.

I did chuckle to see the name "domus de janas" applied to the caves - same old 'faces' crop up everywhere.

A quick google brought up another quite staggering 'work of art' from the same site - Bonorva, Necropoli di Sa Pala Larga

and an interesting one for the cup and ring folk?............

thanks for highlighting this guys.
