By Karina Arifin and Philippe Delanghe

For the first time the four major rock art areas of West Papua: the Berau Gulf, Bitsyari Bay, Triton Bay and the Baliem Valley have been brought together in one book. They form one of the richest regions of Rock Art in Indonesia (among other islands like Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Muna) and include many newly discovered sites. These sites, located along the South Coast and in the Baliem Highlands, contain thousands of paintings. This book presents hundreds of original photographs including hand stencils, matutuo, faces and abstract motifs found in West Papua. It also includes the new discoveries of rock art sites in East Timor, the majority of which are situated in limestone wave cut galleries or caves along the coast.
