New Delhi, May 7 (ANI): Ma Baoguang, a Chinese archaeologist, recently found 1,000 hieroglyphic rock paintings in Yangce Town, Biyang County of east-central China's Henan province.

Ma and a group of students were there on a dig and found the paintings over an area of 5 square kilometres.

One of the most rare and valuable findings is a Juci Mountain-style rock - a large cambered stone, is 8 meters long and 3.7 meters wide. There are more than 500 small craters of different sizes on the surface of the stone and several relatively larger craters that are 13 to 20 centimeters in diameter and three to seven centimeters in depth. Various lines, forming a very large ancient diagram, connect these craters.

"It is quite incredible that a large stone goat carries 'Hetu and Luoshu' (map of the Yellow River and the book of the Luo River) on its back," People's Daily Online quoted Ma as saying. (ANI)
