The best preserved paintings of the plateau of Kovanalan are to be found on the inside walls of a ‘cave’ at a height of approx. 475 m. This ‘cave’ consists of a large block of rock with a chamber-like inside formed by erosion with the entrance on the western side (1). The inside wall of the readily accessible ‘cave’ is, apart from the smooth western side, weathered into numerous niches, nine of which are painted. The inside west wall is also painted. Human figures in varying formations are depicted, as a picture of an individual (4.5), as a couple (2.3) or as a larger group (6.7). Women predominate numerically. They are clothed with loincloths with various decorations and, with a few exceptions, are provided with a male member (?). Some niches are filled with ornaments in addition (2.3), another is decorated with two left hands.
