rock carvings

i'd never seen rock carvings (petroglyphs) before. these carvings (painted red to be more visible) are about 4,000 years old. yo, old skool graffiti will never die! etc. these carvings mostly show moose, moose, and more moose (mice! haha), some people, some fish, and some boats.

Haha, I love your interpretations. I wouldn't be surprised if you're right about quite a few ;)

De var opptatt av båter, men åpenbart ikke fullt så opptatt av båter som NORSKE helleristere, som virkelig ikke tenkte på annet enn båt båt båt. Fine, øh, elger. :D
