located north of East Timor, did not cause the world
archaeologists of any interest. Therefore, you can imagine
how amazed were the scientists when they found the whole
treasury of prehistoric art, which has no analogues
Professor Sue O’Connor and her colleagues didn’t believe their eyes
when dozens of rock paintings with images were discovered here
people, animals, water, boats, weapons, musical instruments and

State of preservation is a rarity. And soon this
a storehouse of valuable information will surely give us new discoveries.
At least that’s what Professor Sue O’Connor himself thinks so.
