Artwork discovered in an Australian cave in the Outback is one of the oldest pieces of art in the world found drawn on a rock. It is estimated to be 28,000 years old. Picasso, it ain't but, still, that's really old!
The art rock was found in an archaeological site in Jawoyn country called "Nawarla Gabarnmang", which is located in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Australian archaeologist Bryce Barker, from the University of Southern Queensland, found the Aboriginal rock art, which was made in charcoal, in June 2011, but only recently was it dated to about 28,000 years ago.
The dating process was performed at the radiocarbon laboratory, located at the University of Waikato in New Zealand.
According to the 6/18/2012 Fox News article "Archaeologist finds oldest rock art in Australia", Dr. Barker stated, "It's the oldest unequivocally dated rock art in Australia" and among the oldest in the world."
