Abstract
To understand the ancient rock paintings correctly, we should start with the analysis of the rock painting chronology and the rock painting form. For the rock paintings rich in quartz crystal, such as the water texture Rock Paintings of Hongshan Hou in the upper reaches of Laohahe River in northern China, we have succeeded in the rock paintings of Hongshan Hou and Zhang Yingrui of Jiguo in Yuan Dynasty according to the dating equipment, procedures and methods used by the international rock painting organizations [1-3]. The tombstone, the tombstone of Zhang Chonglu, the metropolitan governor of the Yuan Dynasty, the tombstone of Confucianism on Quanning Road in the Yuan Dynasty, and other chronologically rich in quartz crystals, were scientifically and noninvasively extracted from the micro-corrosion (microscopic) sample data. According to the corrosion width (area) of quartz crystals in chronological years, the corrosion width per thousand years was obtained, and the production age of rock paintings was calculated. In order to test the accuracy of micro-corrosion dating method, we can adopt the method of cultural relics analogy to make a comparative study on the shape system of rock paintings and the decorative patterns of painted pottery unearthed from rock paintings sites. Results The micro-corrosion dating method was used to measure the E5000+1071/-1071 years and the E5000 years of the moist rhyolite carving in Hongshan Houcao cave. This method was basically consistent with the 5000 years of the colored pottery (carbon 14 dating) unearthed from the rock painting site. Conclusion: Three moist-water rhyolite paintings were found in a river in the upper reaches of Laoha River. The method of making them is the same as that of making them in the same time. The style of making them is the same as that of "cloud and water" in oracle bone inscriptions.
