Wall of Expression

Murals are one of the oldest forms of art, and Indonesia has one of the earliest known examples. In the karst caves of Sulawesi a painting of a babirusa or “deer-pig” was found to be at least 30,000 years old, dating it as one of the oldest forms of figurative work of art in the world. The discovery of these cave paintings rewrites the history of art, raising the possibility that such art predates the exodus of modern humans from Africa 60,000 or more years ago.
