Paper short abstract:

In May 2015, the discovery of a new rock art site in Myanmar was announced. The Gabarni Rock Art Site, known locally as Myanhanauk, is a cluster of sandstone rock shelters locate near the foothills of the Pae Dwe Mountain in western Shan State. It stands just 11km or a day's journey from the famous Padalin Caves, another rock art site with material dating from 7,000 - 12,000 years old. Despite their proximity, the rock art of the two sites do not have much similarities. This presentation will discuss the site, its paintings and context, and plans for archaeological investigation and stabilisation in the near future.
