Rock art in the province of Misiones (Argentina): the site Campo Yabebirí

Daniel Loponte Mirian Carbonera About the authors


In this study, we document the engravings of Campo Yabebirí, located on the right bank of the Yabebirí River, in the Department of San Ignacio, province of Misiones (Argentina). The petroglyphs are so far the only record of rock art encountered in this province. The main designs are circles and abstract figures, stylistically linked to other rock art figures described in southern Brazil.
