Cova Alta del Lledoner

Cova Alta del Lledoner

(6000ac-4000ac)

There are several Levantine hunting scenes, an isolated stag, and a lot of painting remains. The main part of the shelter preserves a hunting scene in which four archers stalk a herd of two male wild goats. Meanwhile, a group of other hunters wait for their reaction in the opposite side of the scene. In the left area of the shelter there are a human figure wounded with arrows in his legs and head, while it is still running towards the right. This shelter is seriously weathered, so figures can be hardly seen.

The left half of Cova Alta del Lledoner preserves some disperse pictographs of Levantine style. There are some remarkable figures like a blackish deer (not included in this picture), a wounded archer, a sitting woman, and an animal. All these paintings are very weathered, affected by many conservation problems.

Description:
The right half of this shelter preserves an interesting hunting scene typical of Levantine art. Here, a numerous group of small size archers, at least seven, are surrounding and firing their bows towards two goats located in the central part of the group. Many of these pictographs were vandalised, so their identification is really hard.
