Lanzhou, May 3 (Canadian-Media/Xinhua): Archaeologists have discovered 16 rock paintings carved with vivid animal figures in northwest China's Gansu Province, including paintings of deer, an important indicator of the area's changing ecosystem, media reports said.
The 16 rock paintings depicting deer, cattle and human hunting were found on Yumu Mountain of the Qilian Mountain Areas at the elevation of 2,760 meters, according to the cultural relics bureau of Sunan County.
The paintings date back 3,500 years ago, according to initial appraisals by researchers.
Five paintings stood out by featuring deer. The largest deer figure, 16 cm long and 8 cm high, stood with its four legs slightly bending. Another little deer was in the running posture.
Researchers said as deers are sensitive to climate and environment changes, the rock paintings can provide clues to the ancient environment of the Qilian Mountain and living conditions of local hunters.
Nearly 5,000 rock paintings at over 80 spots have been discovered on Yumu Mountain, most of which feature well-preserved animal figures.
