Sabu-Jaddi kaljujoonised / Sabu-Jaddi Rock Art

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 18 November 2022 in Miscellaneous.

Located in the Nile Valley, the settlements of Sabu and Jaddi are surrounded by hundreds of rock drawings that stretch over an area of roughly three miles (almost five kilometers) and carry great archaeological, artistic, and spiritual significance. The rock art, which depicts figures and scenes from pre-historic through modern times, is a testimony to 6,000 years of human occupation in the area. (World Monuments Fund)

Niiluse orus asuvad Sabu ja Jaddi asulad on ümbritsetud sadade kaljujoonistega, mis ulatuvad ligikaudu viie kilomeetri pikkusele alale ja on suure arheoloogilise ning kunstiline tähtsusega. Eelajaloolisest ajast alates pärinevaid stseene kujutavad kunstiteosed annavad tunnistust 6000-aastasest inimtegevusest selles piirkonnas.

@Sergei Z: See oli põnev koht küll, keset täielikku kõrbe praegusel ajal. Aga pildid olid laevadest, elevantidest, kaelkirjakutest...
