Muzium Negara - cave paintings

The Early History gallery at Muzium Negara, the National Musuem, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has a feature on cave paintings and drawings.

The stone tools which were used to crush the hematite and charcoal -

Hematite and charcoal

There is quite a nice replica of a cave, showing people preparing a fire and one man doing some cave drawings. There are various cave paintings on the walls.

Around the walls are various drawings

At the front of the cave is a skeleton of an infant from Gua Cha.

Read more about Malaysian cave paintings on my website. And more on the museum displays of cave burials.
