Recent studies

According to Italian researcher Yuri Leveratto,[1] these petroglyphs (two faces and some amazonic signes), are quite similar to the Petroglyphs of Pusharo, and possibly were carved by amazonic peoples during their wat to the Andean Plateau. Possibly these peoples were travelling to the Andean Plateau in order to trade amazonic products (coca leaf, ayahuasca, gold, with some andean products like cereals and andean camelids).
