Morocco Rock Art Gallery

Morocco is located at the north-western corner of Africa, in a unique area forming a link between the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean, Europe and Africa. More than 300 rock art sites have been documented in the country so far, mainly located in two areas: the High Atlas Mountains, and the Sahara desert region to the south and east. They comprise mainly engravings, which could be up to 5,000 years old, and include domestic and wild animals, warriors, weapons and scenes of battles and hunting. Antelope and cattle are the most represented animals in Moroccan rock art, although elephants and rhinoceros are common too.
