14. La Cueva de los Manos

Back Main page Fwd
So this looks like a group of scouts who have been on hike and have had fun with a can of colour spray and left marks of their hands. And maybe that is the way it was – except that there was no can. To wit, this hand graffiti is 9000 years old. Why people did this, no one knows. Maybe it was a ritual. Or maybe it was just grafitti. This is on a cave right out on the Patagonian steppe which is a UNESCO World Heritage.
