from a stone in Australia. Hands are painted in outline,
by spitting/spraying pigment from the mouth
while the hand is placed on the rock. These are
relatively modern paintings, not ancient,
but still perty old (thousands? of years, I don’t remember)
but they look identical to ones done tens of thousands of years
ago in caves in Europe.
