Beskrivelse: Førhistorisk bergkunst, helleristninger i Alta.
Pre-historic rock art from Alta, Norway.There are more rock carvings in Alta than anywhere else in northern Europe, a total of about 3,000 individual figures. They depict people, animals, including reindeer, bears, elk, fish, birds, and boats and weapons. Some carvings appear to show hunting scenes, and others are thought to represent musicians holding instruments like the runebommen, the shamanic drum used in rituals by the Sami people of Norway, Finland, Sweden and Russia.
