They say “If you want to do something, you will find time. If you don’t, then you’ll find a reason”. Seriously, if there is a wish, then everything is possible. This thought can be proven by the most ancient petroglyphs. People wanted to draw even when there was not even a pencil in the past, so they found a way: stones seemed like a perfect material for their art!
Saimaluu Tash (or Decorated Stones in Kyrgyz) is a petroglyph site in Jalal-Abad Province, Kyrgyzstan. Over 10,000 carved pictures have so far been identified, making the site a worldwide important rock-art collection. The findings are thought to date from 2000BC up into the middle ages. The site can be reached in about a day on foot or horseback, but only around the month of August. At other times, snow conditions make it hard to reach.
Saimaluu-Tash keeps many certain discoveries for biologist, ethnographers and even specialists in stone’s processing. There can be met “portraits” of elephants and lions – animals that are not quite typical for Tien-Shan mountains. It means that ancient artists saw them somewhere, or maybe they lived in those regions where these representatives of the fauna existed.
In some petroglyphs (stone drawings) modern scientists saw the ancient calendars, turning back to the darkness of centuries of the priests and cultivators, and even star maps as well.
