Tumlehed rock painting

Tumlehed rock painting is an ancient rock art site located in the Tumlehed parish of Sweden. The site features a number of petroglyphs, or carvings, that were made by prehistoric peoples thousands of years ago.

The petroglyphs at Tumlehed depict a variety of images, including animals such as elk, deer, and horses, as well as human figures and abstract symbols. The carvings were likely made using stone tools and were created by pecking or scratching the rock surface.

The Tumlehed rock painting is thought to date back to the Nordic Bronze Age, which lasted from around 1700 BCE to 500 BCE. The petroglyphs are significant because they provide a rare glimpse into the beliefs and artistic practices of the people who lived in the region during this time period.

The site is open to the public and can be accessed by a short hike. There is also an interpretive center nearby that provides information about the history and significance of the Tumlehed rock painting, as well as other rock art sites in the area.
