A new set of ancient paintings were discovered in Phang Nga Bay Marine National Park on Friday (July 24).

Sarayuth Tanthien, head of the national park, said he found these ancient paintings when he led park officials to investigate the Petch Pakarang Cave at Koh Talu Island in Takua Thung district.

 

"A new set of ancient paintings were as same as other paintings found in Phang Nga Bay and nearby areas," he said. "We are waiting for related authorities to join our investigation."

He added that currently there were four places in the national park where ancient paintings were found: Khao Phra At Thao, Khao Nak, Khao Raya, and Khao Khien.

 

"We assume that these paintings were painted by ancient sailors who came to shelter from the monsoon," he added. "The Fine Arts Department said these paintings were done not less than 3,000 years ago."

Wow, amazing, unbelievable, what an earth shattering discovery  - maybe TAT should claim a new world hub of cave paintings -- even though Australian cave-art can be dated back to about 50,000 years and maybe older.

As an art critic, I'd have say that the ones in Europe are a little better, as well as older. 

One of the most curious facts about prehistoric cave paintings is that in many cases the sizes of hand stencils suggest that many were done by young boys, and the female figurations suggest that said boys were just starting to get interested in sex. Now they would be rock stars, get it?


Just ancient graffiti.

Why sailors? We need Phil Harding here looking for flint artifacts.

probably done by ancient local students taken there by their teacher, hopefully they were luckier than their descendants taken into a cave system, prone to flooding, by their teacher to do some graffiti...

The most amazing this is that the human figures look like a style similar to cave paintings and rock paintings some other places, however much older dated paintings

When they define something as being of a certain age, this age is mostly made up, similar to the age of the pyramids and other such things. But in this case here they even say "not less than 3000 years old", so could as well be 10 or 50,000 years old.

Here is what you MISSED!!!!!!!!

 

Underneath the "stick" man, there is a fingerprint sensor, created 100,000 BC.  Only three people on Earth can open this particular wall, since it's made of a substance 1 zillion times harder than Diamond.  Once in the cave, you will find time traveling devices.   Unfortunately, the devices are set to take you back to a time where ladyboy T-Rex's could smell the farang from 100000 miles away and attack within 0.000001 seconds.  Don't worry, I'm working on it..
