Photographer Derya Akkaynak snapped a shot of these rock carvings in Israel's Timna Park, a valley full of unusual rock formations and other geological oddities. Various rock drawings have been found in the area.

This particular hunting scene seems to have been carved into the rock. Even though cave paintings and rock carvings are very old, many artists and academics actually consider them comics — after all, they're pieces of sequential art that tell a story. What do you think? Is this hunting story really so different from "Peanuts?"
