Summary: A small panel in the Hjemmeluft site, Ole Pedersen 8A mainly features reindeer, bears and bear tracks.

Situated 24-25 metres above the current sea level, the carvings on the Ole Pedersen 8A panel were made between 6000 and 7000 years ago.

The rock surface is approximately horizontal at the top of the panel, and slopes steeply towards the east, where most of the figures are found. The panel mainly features reindeer, bears and bear tracks, and a woman and man standing together.

The panel was vandalised in 1993, and some of the paint remains on the panel.
