Cuban Rock Art

Cueva de Ambrosio, GPS: N 23°11'22.6" / W 81°09'57.1" (Peninsula de Hicacos, Cuba)

This decorated cave has been discovered in 1974. Soon afterwards, some of the paintings might have been "re-freshed"  by Prof. Antonio Núñez Jiménez. In a recent paper, Racso Fernandez identified the "spectacle" pattern found at the Ambrosio cave as the representation of the conjuntion of the moon and the sun.We suggest that this conjunction might be connected (as in the example we have reported  for Carthage in year - 462 ) to a total solar eclipse.
