This is a photo of spider rock art that archaeologists have discovered in Egypt. The art was found in Kharga Oasis in Egypt's Western Desert. This discovery was so important because it could be proven to be the first discovered Old World rock art and not just the first Egyptian art. This art was allegedly created around 4000 B.C. The panels have seven figures that could depict spiders. An archaeologist states the spider species from the art is Argiope lobata. The reason for this specific species is because this spider is known to stay in the web under the noonday sun. This could have been symbolic to the people who left the rock artwork behind. Below are more pictures of the rock art that were discovered with this one.
