Petroglyphs of Lake Onega and the White Sea is part of the Tentative list of Russia in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Petroglyphs of Lake Onega and the White Sea are two groups of rock art in the Republic of Karelia, over 300km apart. Together they show some 4,600 figures carved into the rocks at the lakeshore. The petroglyphs include multi-figure realistic hunting scenes. They date from the Neolithic age and have been preserved without later additions, due to being covered by sand deposits.
