1. Laas Geel is a complex of caves and rock shelters in northwestern Somalia decorated with pre-historic (Neolithic) paintings dating all the back somewhere between 15,000 to 8000 BC

    The paintings show ancient humans of the area raising their hands and worshipping humpless cows wearing ceremonial robes with large lyre-shaped horns.

    (Ariadne Van Zandbergen)
