Wild pig painting of Leang Timpuseng Cave, Maros, South Sulawesi.

Wild pig painting of Leang Timpuseng Cave, Maros, South Sulawesi.

Latest study conducted in 2011 - 2013 by Wollongong and Griffith University of Australia, National Archeology Center of Indonesia and Makassar Center for Cultural and Heritage Preservation showed the uranium dating result for this specific painting is 35,400 years old. Perhaps this is the oldest painting made by human. The other oldest one in Spain (40,000 years old) is a hand stencil, not a painting. The result was published in Nature magazine, October 2014.
