Photographer's Note


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.
