3,000-year-old cliff art found in China
The 1.4 meter-by-1.6 meter (50-by-60-inch) painting was found near the Jinsha River in Yunnan province, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
Local people guided a three-member team of archaeologists to the painting, said Ji Xueping, associate professor with the Yunnan Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology.
The painting was made with a mixture of iron ore and animal blood, Ji said.
