The oldest painting in the world was unearthed underground in Syria by French archaeologists. The 11,000 yr old two square-meter painting that dates back to 9,000 BC is surprisingly modernistic with red, black and white squares all over.
Where do you think the colors came from? Hematite rock gave the red color, while crushed limestone and charcoal were used for the white and black.
Syrian artist, Mustafa Ali says that such patterns are commonly used in Persian carpets and rugs. The painting will be housed in the Alepp�s museum next year. The earlier officially declared oldest painting was a 1,500 year old one that was found in Turkey.
