The earliest known works of art in the Philippines are the Angono Petroglyphs. Carved around 3000 BC by neolithic persons, the sketches are considered to be symbolic. On ancient rocks composed of compressed volcanic ash, the 127 engravings are carved. On a field trip in 1965, a Boy Scout found them. It is assumed that the drawings were used in ancient rituals of healing.
