Description:
We will seek to locate the following shelter site located at the top of the talus slope and base of the cliff line between GR 455 438 and GR 458 432. The shelter is described, “This shelter is a very big one, 100ft long, 35ft high and 27ft from front to back. It faces the south west and looks out over the very wide and flat top like a small plateau of a ridge situated between Umbiella and Running Creeks, east of Crown Station. It is an excellent shelter for habitation, with permanent water nearby, but there is a very stiff climb to it from the Capertee Valley on the western side and the Aborigines may have approached it from another direction… On the flatter portions of the back wall of this shelter is a frieze of 70 stencils which form several groups at the southern end and towards the middle of the shelter; some of them are just above the floor deposit, and as potion of these surfaces have weathered away it is probable that these lower placed stencils were made before the shelter was occupied or before the deposit developed to any extent… At the northern end is a group of charcoal figures in which the interior of the body is infilled with closely drawn thick lines, which merge into solid areas on the limbs. These pseudo –silhouettes comprise a large figure probably and anthropomorphic ancestral being or other spirit, 5’7’’ high and 2’4” wide on which the lines are clearly visible down both sides but in the middle have been rubbed away by cattle sheltering in the cave ; a human figure 3’ high; a koala 3’ high and traces of three faded figures which include a fringe like design 9” long.” All ex McCarthy, F.D.
