Join the excitement


Israel rock art center offers a variety of ways to learn about rock art, sometimes referred as  rock engravings or petroglyphs. Our goal  is to share information about  rockart and introduce them to large audience through: series of lectures, conferences, pictures,  articles , jeep tours all about  rock art.  

     Rockart, petroglyphs are  images created by engraving the rock surface. The Negev desert is packed with rock art, concentrated  in holy places and pilgrimage sites. Rock art constitutes a major testimony of early man's beliefs. They were holy messages, a treasures of the past in the form of recorded: thoughts, beliefs, and myths. The earliest script is just over 5,000 years old but rock art  provides a much earlier record of the past,  and encoding them is an exciting journey into the deep past.
