Caption

Prehistoric rock art, or petroglyphs, dating from 4,500 to 17,000 years ago. Photographed in the Teimareh valley, Zagros mountains, Iran. With about 20,000 engraved images, this region is one of the world's most diverse petroglyph sites. In this panel, there are signs of the first era of horse riding in the Middle East (around 6,000 years ago) and some other pictures are from the late Paleolithic (12,000 years ago). In the sky above, the star Sirius can be seen (centre), with the Orion and Seven Sisters constellations to the right.
