Racó de Nando VII

(7000ac-4500ac)

Several groups of paintings are preserved in Racó de Nando rock art site. The best-known one is shelter VII, where paintings are better preserved. A group of strange animals, that have been interpreted as horses, but they look close to wild boars as well, are hounded by two running archers that are aiming their arrows and bows to them. Two tiny archers can be seen to the right hand of the bigger archer. This scene could be bigger according to the pigment remains all over the panel.
