Kanlıkaya (Bloody Stone) prehistoric rock paintings

Kanlıkaya region located approximately 700 m in the west of Sindel Village. The paintings were drawn in red and purple brown colour on to a rock boulder known as Kanlıkaya (Bloody Stone). At first glance, three hands are recognized in these paintings which are highly significant for the prehistory of Western Anatolia. These rocks paintings claimed to be created by the people who left their footprints on the volcanic ash in vicinity based on circular drawing filled with dots under the low - left hand which may be the depiction of the Çakallar activity. Even not unique, this one of the few prehistoric rock painting localities in Turkey
