Deda'ahneten Rock Art, Socotra, Yemen

Deda’ahneten Rock Art

Deda’ahneten is just 350 meters south of the center of Shiq and features a 176 meter slab with a scattering of petroglyphs that date back to before the arrival of the Portuguese in the 16th century.

The Deda’ahneten Petroglyphs features human and animal forms, cruciform shapes, a ship, and even plants.

These petroglyphs would go on to become the very first protected site on Socotra.
