Sociedad de Investigación del Arte Rupestre de Bolivia
Founded in 1987, the Bolivian Rock Art Research Society SIARB (Sociedad de Investigación del Arte Rupestre de Bolivia) investigates and records rock paintings and petroglyphs; protects and conserves rock art sites; publishes scientific reports; and educates the general public. SIARB has registered 1000 sites in all departments of the country. Rock art in Bolivia has a very long tradition, apparently beginning in the Paleo-Indian period and continuing up to the Colonial and Republican periods. Numerous sites are still worshipped by present-day Indians who regard them as sacred places and realize offerings and rites there.
