Grotto Draverta, painted stones - information for tourists.

P.L. Dravert first studied the image in the grotto in 1926, while walking he discovered it. It was found that 15 figures were depicted, of which 10 should be attributed to the depiction of people in different poses, and three figures undoubtedly belong to men, since they are equipped with phalluses. The meaning of the image has not been established. Perhaps it was something like a natural safe for the preservation of the image and was also considered a sacred place. When the explorer returned to the cave in 1927, the inscriptions were overwritten by people vacationing here. Only a sketch remains, now the images are completely lost.
