In this depiction what appears to be a carnivore with gaping jaws chases an ungulate. The most plausible identification of the long horned ungulate is a deer or antelope. As for the stripped carnivore the wolf is a likely candidate but we cannot rule out the tiger. Until the onset of the Iron Age, a subspecies of the tiger was native to the adjoining Turkestan (Xinjiang) region and tigers hold an important place in Bon tradition. The head of the upper ungulate has been obliterated by a Buddhist mantra. This destruction of earlier rock art by Buddhist mantras is a common occurrence and is indicative of the great religious transition that took place in Tibet. Pre-Buddhist or early Buddhist period.
