Rock paintings were discovered in three places on the approx. 800 m high Kayabaşı located above the village of Sakarkaya (1). The largest and best preserved one is located on the rear wall of a low cave (2-3). Several human figures, six hands and various ornaments - zigzag lines, strokes, rows of dots, meanders, chevrons, and a large lattice pattern - can still be recognised in the 2.80 m long and 1.30 m high painting. The picture is dominated by the hand-prints and the large lattice pattern; by contrast the human figures make the impression of being of rather secondary importance (4-5).
