‘Sistine Chapel of the ancients’ rock art discovered in remote Amazon forest

Back in 2019, archaeologists were made aware of a giant section of rock art in Colombia that was created up to 12,500 years ago. Their findings were only released to the general public a few months ago, and since then the incredible ochre designs have stunned the global community. The eight miles of artwork includes tens of thousands of paintings that portray humans and animals, many of which are depictions of long-extinct creatures. These works are located in the area that is known to researchers as the Serranía La Lindosa, an archaeological site nestled within the Colombian Amazon. Find that article here.
