cave paintings at Niah

I've been to Niah National Park in Sarawak, Malaysia, three times. In 1987, 1997 and 2001.

Niah Cave is famous for the Niah skull, an approx 40,000 year old human skull found in 1958.

Also there are some paintings in the Painted Cave at Niah that have been dated at about 1200 years.

On the 1987 I was able to get close to the paintings at Painted Cave, but I don't have the photos here to scan. By 1997 the paintings were securely fenced off.
