Nyero Rock Paintings


The Nyero Rockpaintings are rock paintings in Uganda. They comprise a three-tiered rock shelter with primitive paintings on their inner surfaces. Archaeologically, the site dates back to the Later Iron Age. The makers of the paintings cannot be identified, but the ingenuity with which they were painted demonstrates a high degree of appreciation of their aesthetic values. Nyero rock paintings are 8km west of Kumi town on the Ngora road in Eastern Uganda. Some of the paintings represent animals, concentric circles and canoes.
