Rock paintings of Irangi Hills
At several places around Kolo Village in the Irangi Hills, there are rock paintings, some of which date from some 3000 years and others only a few centuries.
There are hundreds of sites, but most are easily reached and often paintings are in poor condition.
In the hills under rocky escarpments, people called Sandawe used to live. They were related to an old tribe from South Africa called San. These people would have created these paintings. Another theory makes the Bantu people (those currently living in Tanzania) as the authors.
It is a little bit difficult to see the patterns, but one should see:
|a sorcerer (the tall figure on the left)|
|three persons in the centre (two holding the figure in the middle)|
