Sydinskaya pisanitsa

The Sydinskaya pisanitsa, or, as it is also called, the Bychikha pisanitsa - a monument of ancient fine art, is located in the Sydo-Erbinsk crater, on the southern slope of Mount Bychikha, about 2 km from the village of Syda flooded during the construction of the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric station, Krasnoturansky district. Its images date back to the Bronze Age and Tagar culture, but there are later drawings as well.
On the stones you can find numerous images of figures of deer, goats, horses, as well as fantastic (and maybe quite real!) pdators combining the features of a wild boar, wolf, leopard and other animals. On one of the planes birds with outstretched wings are depicted. The bodies of animals are filled with small curls and wavy lines. Among the anthropomorphic figures there are archers, horsemen, warriors with battle axes, etc.

There are quite a lot of later images on the monument, distinguished by a low degree of patinization. Basically, these are anthropomorphic figures with characteristic short bodies depicted in battle scenes.
