Fig. 145. Enigmatic rock engravings with different patinas. In the upper left is a representation of an axe of Bronze Age type; below there is a large foot print, crossed by a snake, with an anthropomorphic figure within. A series of ideograms are from an earlier period. On the right, three figures have three different patinas. The most ancient one is an ideogram that represents the head of an ox; the second represents an antelope, and finally, between them, a vertical line shows an even lighter patina, indicating the most recent engraving.
