Aspects of ancient Somali styles of architecture and art can be seen in the various Somali civilizations. The oldest evidence of art in the Somali peninsula are pre-historic rock paintings. The rock art of Laas Geel are thought to be some of the best-preserved in Africa, representing cows in ceremonial robes accompanied by humans. The textile culture of Somalia is also an ancient one, and the Somali textile center in Mogadishu was, from at least the 13th century to the late 19th century, considered to be one of the main textile hubs in the Indian Ocean.
