Aboriginal art at Ubirr
This ~2200 y.o. drawing of a thylacine is on a cave rock in Ubirr, an aboriginal holy site in the Kakadu National Park, in the Northern Territory of Australia. There is art depicting indigenous wildlife, local spirits, and the aborigines themselves. Since approximately 40,000 years ago, the many rock outcroppings at Ubirr have been painted and re-painted, but the pigment used on this illustration has been dated to (roughly) 200 B.C.E.
The thylacine is known to have been extinct in this area for over 2000 years.
