Very many rock carvings have been found in the Negev, mostly dating to between 2,000 and 4,000 years ago. These carvings depict the desires of the pagan people who created this art. For example ibex for strength (as in the first picture) and people with arms outstretched for prayer. Many of the carvings of people with arms outstretched include small straight lines which may symbolize rain.
The above rock carvings are at Har Michya, only a few minutes away by car from Midreshet Ben Gurion.
