Calderramos 3 (Inside shelter)
Atlantic Rock Art is a landscape art. Carvings are usually deployed on boulders or outcrops located in the open. Nevertheless, every now and then there are exceptions. Calderramos 3 is one of them, a shelter located in quite high ground in Barbanza Peninsula (Galicia). The motifs, however, are still carved on the floor of the shelter, a horizontal surface, similar to other rocks in the landscape. In this case, the detail of the engravings is amazing and very well preserved, due to the protection of the shelter, keeping the elements away. Interestingly, the composition extends to the outside of the shelter and therefore it is possible to compare the difference in the weathering of the grooves.
