About This Book

This book addresses for the first time four major rock art areas of West Papua: the Berau Gulf, Bitsyari Bay, Triton Bay and the Baliem Valley. Together they form one of the richest regions of Rock Art in Indonesia (among other islands like Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Muna) and include many newly discovered sites. These sites, located along the South Coast and the Baliem Highlands, contain thousands of paintings. This book presents, for the first time, hundreds of original photographs including hand stencils, matutuo, faces and abstract motifs found in West Papua. This book also includes East Timorese rock art and compiles existing hypotheses on the antiquity and origins of rock art in the region.
