Anshal VI


A narrow rock shelter/cave known as Anshal VI located along one of the right tributaries of the Wadi Anshal. The site contains petroglyphs and engravings grouped on two panels. Panel 1, near the entrance, comprises a cluster of carved petroglyphs representing cattle and geometric signs together with small cupules. Panel 2 is inside the shelter on a very damaged, flaking surface and consists of a pastoral scene with two Uan Amil-type humans and a cow herd. Red humans with white clothing and headdresses are located at the top, above a group of six white cattle with red patches representing coat color. Red contours and the addition of eyes on some of the cattle bear evidence of retouching. The scene was reproduced on one of the chipboard panels in the Mori collection.
