The east-facing Yengo 2 shelter has a diverse range of Aboriginal rock art, which is quite different to that of the adjacent Yengo 1 shelter. The shelter was excavated and extensively documented by Jo McDonald in 1987/88, and the statistics below are summarised from her work.
While there are many stencils in Yengo 2 – unlike the adjacent shelter there are any more drawings and paintings.
Depictive motifs account for about 60% of the assemblage, with most being identifiable. They include anthropomorphs and macropods (25% and 19%) as well as many other land animals – goannas, snakes, possums, a koala and a flying fox. Almost half the depictive are infilled or outlined and infilled.
White pigment is the most dominant colour (58.6%), followed by black (31.1%), red (13.1%) and yellow (5%). A number of figures are superimposed.
There are 40 stencilled motifs which are mostly hands (72.5%) or hand variations (20%) – and one stencilled axe. As with Yengo 1, left hand stencils dominate: they represent 65% of identifiable stencils and 87.5% of all stencil variations. However all of the stencils at Yengo 2 are adult sized, unlike Yengo 2.
While most of the motifs are across the back wall of the shelter, above the opening is an assemblage of hand stencils.
