                            Lake of Vishap & Vishaps (DRAGON STONES)
These unique monuments are distinct and peculiar to the culture of the Armenian Highland. The vishaps (dragon stones), are huge monolithic stelas of basalt, up to 6 meters tall, which were erected amid natural and artificial lakes and springs, symbolizing the unruly elements of nature, awakening of nature, fertility, and abundanu. Vishap stones were put inside burials as well, probably symbolizing reincarnation. According some scholars, the vishaps were dedicated to the goddess of love, fertility and waters – Astghik (Derceto, Aphrodite). Still others considered them as monuments dedicated to the dying and resurrecting deity – Ara the Beautiful.

The Mountains Geghama and the Lake of Dragon Above
Gegham mountains are a range of mountains in Armenia. The range is a tableland-type watershed basin of Sevan Lake from east, inflows of rivers Araks and Hrazdan from north and west, Azat and Vedi rivers from south-west and Arpachai river from south. The average elevation of the Geghama mountain range is near 2500m. The range is of volcanic origin including many extinct volcanoes. The range is 70 km length and 48 km width, and stretch between Lake Sevan and the Ararat plain. The highest peak of the Geghama mountains is the Azhdahak, at 3597m. The highland reaches a height of 1800–2000m up to 3000m in the dividing ridge.

Petroglyphs of Geghama Mountains

PETROGLYPHS OF THE ARMENIAN HIGHLAND During the Middle Stone Age (Mesolithic, 12000-8000BC), a new area of artistic activity emerged in various regions of the vast Eurasian continent – the art of petroglyphs. Petroglyphs are images created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, picking, carving, or abrading, as a form of rock art. Scholars often use terms such as "carving", "engraving", or other descriptions of the technique to refer to such images. On the flat and sunburned surfaces of rocks and boulders, and on the volcanic bombs and stones of petrified lava "rivers,” geometric and floral decorations, anthropomorphic, zoomorphic images of birds and reptiles, weapons and household objects, boats and rafts, carriages and chariots, mythical, battle, and hunting scenes were engraved. The dates of specific groups of petroglyphs are difficult to ascertain. The Armenian petroglyphs are exceptional in the context of prehistoric Near East culture by their number, variety, style, and content. There are over 100,000 petroglyphs known in the Armenian Highland, more densely located in Syunik – Ukhtasar, Vayk – Jermuk mountains, Gegharkunik – Ajhdahak, Kotayk – Paytasar and Zar, Aragatsotn – Voskehat, Mt. Aragats, Kakavaberd and other regions of the Republic of Armenia. The petroglyphs are mainly spread in high mountainous areas, at 2000-3000 meters above sea level, although there are also examples found at lower altitudes, between 1000 and 2000 meters above sea level. The art-historical and archeological analysis suggests a chronology of rock art emerging in the Armenian Highland around the Mesolithic- Neolithic periods and lasting to the Middle Ages, reaching its apogee in the Bronze Age. The petroglyphs depict both highly symbolized and primitive naturalistic images, figures in static and dynamic poses, individual and thematic compositions encompassing all the important spheres of human activity and perceptions of the universe. #ayrarattour
