Arawak/Taino Cave Art of Jamaica

Written by GlennWoodley

This series of images are interpretations of the cave art found all over Jamaica. Evidence of a people long gone, and a unique and precious part of Jamaica’s National Heritage. These particular images are from the bottom of a deep limestone sink hole near Jacksons Bay, originally recorded by Dr Alan Fincham in his definitive publication ‘Jamaica Underground’ of 1977. These are but a sample of numerous indigenous images painted onto local cave walls. Messages from a time longpast , interpreted by artist Glenn Woodley ,who grew up in Jamaica.
