Photographer's Note

After my posting of a photo of Walga Rock yesterday Bev (Royaldevon) asked about photos of the rock paintings so here is an example of the rock art at Walga Rock. Walga actually means ochre painting in the local Aboriginal language. Walga Rock been an art site for 10,000 years. This photo is of a section of art that covered the best part of 100 metres of wall under an overhang.
If you look closely at this photo you can see several layers of paintings from darker earlier ones through to much whiter and more recent ones.
It isn't easy to identify exactly what these paintings depict but one the left hand side is what looks like a stylised kangaroo or wallaby. Other figures could well be people.
