Photo from the Cave of Swimmers, Sahara Desert, Egypt near the Syrian border. Neolithic pictographs (rock painting images) of people swimming. They are estimated to have been created 10,000 years ago during the time of the most recent Ice Age. Substantial portions of the cave have been irreversibly damaged by visitors over the years. Fragments of the paintings have been removed as souvenirs, and some surfaces have cracked after water was applied to 'enhance' their contrast for photographs. _______________________________ To see all posts to Ruble’s Wonderings: If you “Like” the Ruble’s Wonderings page, you will see only about 5% of the posts to your Facebook timeline (higher percentage for short time if you comment or ‘Like’ a post).
