Karkur Talh: Aurochs and Giraffes

Early Rock Art at Karkur Talh

The artist has carefully included the patterning on the giraffes.  A small bovid appears in the middle of the picture just in front of the center giraffe.  Close examination shows that the artist has drawn a dapple pattern on the aurochs.
