As I promised, today I show you some of the rock paintings in the caves of the natural park of Los Haitises.
The most important are in the Cueva della Linea, and this, the richest one, is known as the big chemistry panel.
This cave is the most important of the park in relation to the rock art that it contains. It is located in the Cano Prison area, on the edge of an extensive mangrove. The name of cave of the Line or the Railroad derives from the existence of an old railroad in its surroundings that served to take to a dock the production of rice of the zone. The cave has a development of about 600 meters and observes the sunlight throughout the course. In a survey we did some years ago, in addition to topography of the cave, we were able to count more than 950 paintings still visible, although the cave had to contain many more, since many zones are observed with evidence that the paintings that contained, in Mostly due to natural causes.


Come avevo promesso, oggi vi mostro alcune delle pitture rupestri presenti nelle grotte del parco natural di Los Haitises.
Le più importanti si trovano nella Cueva della Linea, e questa , la piu ricca in assoluto, viene detta panel del gran chemi.

Hello Luciano,

You have presented rock painting which is a good documentation, I have read your text about this painting, nice framing and this is an unusual presentation, well done.

my warm regards,


Bonjour, cher Luciano,
Merci de nous faire découvrir ces inscriptions et dessins rupestres. Les graffitis rencontrés de nos jours sont à peu près comparables pour certains ! ;o)
Magnifique de pouvoir contempler encore de nos jours les traces laissées par l'homme.

Ciao Luciano,

This is real very important nice found.
I like the old drawings.
Also a nice presentation.
Very well done,TFS.

Best regards,

Caro Luciano

Una foto intrigante, unica e' molto interessante. Anche i WS. Quanti anni hanno le pitture? Ho visto le pitture degli aborigeni qui, sono circa 10 000 anni di eta. Vedendo queste pitture sarebbe una grande esperienza. Beata te.

Un abbraccio e buona settimana

Ciao Luciano
Je vois que les graffitis ont évoluer depuis :-) c'est assez amusant a voir, bien sur intéressant aussi, excellent rendu sous une bonne lumière
belle soirée

Ciao Luciano,
It is amazing to see how people in ancient times used to depict painting upon walls as a heritage for future.
Well managed the light underground, a clear drawings seen marvelously.

luciano hello...this is truly amazing and interesting! well thought out shot too! tfs dale

Ciao caro Luciano,

It has long been a dream of mine to find something really important with regard to history ... I think that's why I enjoy metal detecting. To be e first to discover something like this must be mind blowing!

You have done well to get such a clear photograph from the inside of the cave. I can imagine the pleasure you had exploring the cave and deciding upon a viewpoint to get the best images to share with others.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Fine presentation.
Nice shot

Bonsoir Luciano,

Le sujet est bien cadré. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des images sur le mur de la caverne. La lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Ciao Luciano Those drawings transport my imagination in some nonadic camping place of the cave age when people could'nt write and used symbols to communicate. Thanks for showing such interesting voyage back in the time machine. Saluti

Hello Luciano,
The pictographs on the wall of the cave are very well documented in this photo. Sharpness and textures are fine, well done!

Good morning,
It's amazing that those are still in good shape. May look silly nowadays but there are good clues about our history on Earth. Well taken.

Hello Luciano,

Interesting petroglyphs all with their own unique style. Good sharpness with effective tight framing and no wasted space. The birds seem to be a popular subject but there are a couple of angry looking gods. Tfs!

Hi Luciano
No sabía de la existencia de arte rupestre en ese pais. Interesante.
Los dibujos se muestran con una adecuada exposición y nitidéz, lo cual no es tan fácil en lugares confinados.
Esos personajes extraños se prestan a diversas interpretaciones.


Hello Luciano
It is always fascinating to see the work of our ancestors. Especially from the time they invented art. Also astonishing how modern their artworks seem to be.
Beautiful work, Have a nice day. Groet Rob

Hi Luciano
A peek into the past and a nice record shot - much like the Bushmen rock paintings with fairly good definition and natural colours. Nice capture.
Best regards

Ciao Luciano
possono sembrare disegni infantili, ma sono molto dettagliati, tutti questi particolari non riescono a metterli insieme i bambini.
Ottima foto, eccellente qualità e non credo proprio ci siano state le condizioni ideali.
Buona domenica

Hello Luciano,
You captured these old drawings well in the probably dark cave. The pictures are very interesting and make me believe I could have seen similar figures in an exhibition of surrealistic artists.
Kind regards,

hello dear sir
very interesting image good work nice old rock painting i like it very sharp image you take.

Hi Luciano,
Özgürce yapılmış resimler,bununiçin enteresan.
Resim her yere yapılır,seyredeni pldıktan sonra.
Güzel bir kare ve bilgiyi bizimle paylaştın,teşekkürler.

Ciao Luciano,

Your note is a very good addition to the photo. I imagine they used mainly charcoal to draw the petroglyphs, but do you happen to know how old they are?

Warm regards,


Hi Luciano
very interesting indeed. I like the WS with the information guide.

these carvings/paintings look almost like they were done by children haha.

educational historic TE post, its good to have these once in a while. cool subject material. cheers

Hello, Luciano!

I saw these interesting paintings there, but I couldn't take any photos there with so many people in the group and little time... You captured it well, with good light and sharpness! Beautiful job!
