Andriamamelo Cave UPSC NOTE


  • Andriamamelo Cave is located in the Beanka Protected Area in western Madagascar

  • It was discovered in 2016 and is home to a unique collection of prehistoric rock art

  • The art is unlike anything else that has been found in Madagascar before, and it suggests that there may have been cultural connections between Madagascar and other parts of the world, such as Africa and Asia. 

  • The paintings in Andriamamelo Cave are mostly black and white, and they depict a variety of scenes, including humans, animals, and plants.

  • Some of the paintings are very detailed, while others are more abstract

  • The artists who created the paintings used a variety of techniques, including charcoal, ochre, and hematite.

  • The dating of the Andriamamelo Cave paintings is still uncertain, but they are thought to be at least several thousand years old. 

  • Some experts believe that they may be as old as 20,000 years old

  • If this is the case, then the Andriamamelo Cave paintings would be some of the oldest rock art in Africa.
