Rock Carvings at Wong Chuk Hang (Wong Chuk Hang, Southern District)
Rock Carvings at Wong Chuk Hang are located beside a stream course at Wong Chuk Hang on Hong Kong Island. Three main groups of carved patterns can be recognised. They consist of meandering and spiral designs suggesting stylised animal eyes. It is most unusual that they stand at least a kilometre from the sea, unlike other rock carvings in Hong Kong, although they still overlook 'a small expanse of water', i.e. the stream running below them.
