Most of the rock engravings in the caves in Gobustan depict primitive men, animals, battle-pieces, ritual dances, bullfights, boats with armed oarsmen, warriors with lances in their hands, camel caravans, pictures of sun and stars.This one right here is one of a goat, and a pretty healthy goat she appears to be too! The petroglyphs and rock engravings in Gobustan are an exceptional testimony to a way of life that has disappeared. Graphic representations of activities connected with hunting and fishing at a time when the climate and vegetation of the area were warmer and wetter than today can be seen, for those who care to really slow down to study the many faded petroglyphs at the site.
