    Aboriginal Cave Paintings- 1000's Years Old

    We made our way to Bigge island, site of where sailors who committed mutiny hundreds of years ago were left stranded. Bigge Island is located off the coast of Western Australia.

    We were looking for aboriginal cave paintings which date over several thousands years old. The temperatures exceeded 100 degrees F when we made our landing of the beach. the island is in an area where people do not travel to. Having received special permission from the aboriginal leader whose job it is to manage thousands of square miles in Western Australia, we ventured deep into the sandstone carve and witnessed beautiful rock art.

    Inside the cave were skulls and bones from aboriginals which we were not allowed to photograph.

    Enjoy these beautiful cave paintings.

    Notice the hands on the rock walls. It was their form of signatures for the paintings.
