Reports say Vandals have destroyed sacred artwork, Nullarbor Plain Art, in South Australia thought to be about thirty thousand years old.
The artwork which are designs carved into the chalk limestone walls of the Koonalda Cave, has special significance for the region’s Aboriginal Mirning people.
The vandals are thought to have dug under a steel gate.
Meanwhile, the authorities are investigating.
South Australia Attorney General and Aboriginal Affairs Minister, Kyam Maher told newsmen that this is quite frankly shocking, adding that these caves are some of the earliest evidence of Aboriginal occupation of that part of the country.
Senior Mining elder, Uncle Bunna Lawrie, told newsmen, he first heard about the devastating vandalism from the media and said it was another example of the constant disrespect his people had experienced
