Recording - South Island Māori Rock Art Project - SIMRAP
 

   
 

The South Island Māori Rock Art Project or SIMRAP was established to find
and record as much rock art as possible within
Te Waipounamu, or the South Island.

The project began in the early 1990s with a pilot study around the Oamaru area in
North Otago. The pilot study resulted in a 300% increase in the number of sites that
were previously recorded. There was also a dramatic increase in the number
of individual figures recorded in the known rock art sites.
