The Tanbaly Petroglyphs EX-752

The Tanbaly petroglyphs, located 160 km from Almaty. This place is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 2004.
In the late 50s of the last century in the Chu-ili mountains, in the gorge of Tanbaly, a unique place with rock paintings of an unknown civilization was found. Ancient images, which are mainly in the lower part of the gorge, are related to the bronze age — the gallery of petroglyphs was carved three and a half thousand years ago.
The mysterious civilization has disappeared without living up to now, but left more than 4 000 drawings, in which our ancestors displayed their life and worldview. The paintings depict both individual animals and people, and the whole scene of life. Very interesting drawings of ritual sacrifices, initiation rites (dance of two priests with two men, dedicated to the rank of soldiers), the cult of fertility, archery, images of riders on horseback and tours. In Tanbaly there are also drawings of animals, now completely disappeared in these parts.
