The painting techniques of ancient artists

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

These magnificent paintings found in the Altai Mountains show ancient figures with round horns and feathers on their heads.

Some have been called celestial bodies and there are artful depictions of animals and birds. 

The finds are from an ancient previously untouched burial in Karakol village in the Altai Republic.

They were uncovered in 1985 but are now yielding new and unexpected secrets.

The vivid decorations were found on the stone slabs used as walls of the burials. 

Scientists were stunned by the fact that the drawings were made in three colours, white, red and black,  the first case of polychrome rock paintings ever found in Siberia.
