Rock Cut Art

'Relief carving': - (Low ('bas'), Sunken and High) of rock which remains 'in situ'. Where the representation consists of 'line' drawings, patterns or characters scratched, pecked or etched into the rock this has been categorised under an alternative connection - 'Petroglyphs'). Where such carving exists as part of a rock cut architecture ensemble it is only represented under that 'Connection'.

The connection belongs to Human Activity connections.
