Siberian archaeologists have found in Altai one of the largest rock carvings of a deer

Scientists at the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography (IAET) of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences have discovered a boulder with a carving of a deer figure. The object has been found in the river Taldur valley in the Altai region near the Mongolian border. It is 170 cm long and is one of the largest images of a deer in Altai petroglyphs.

The petroglyph composition measures 310 cm by 170 cm. There are at least 28 figures carved on the stone — goats, bulls, deer and a man*. The largest figure is a deer with branched horns, located on the left side of the composition. A female deer is depicted next to it, but it is smaller in size and not so carefully graven — scientists believe that its image could be unfinished.

Archaeologists dated to the find to the second half of the II millennium BC.
