The cave contains 14 pictograph panels with ochre or charcoal motifs, as well as four modified natural formations, called speleothems.
Pictographs are varied in style, with abstract images most common; circle and dot and sun-burst like motifs are prominent in the main chamber.
260, by Graham Hancock]"Sri Yukteswar’s introduction to The Holy Science includes his explanation of the Yuga Cycle – revolutionary because of his premise that the earth is now in the age of Dwapara Yuga, not the Kali Yuga that most Indian pundits believe to be the current age. His theory is based on the idea that the sun “takes some star for its dual and revolves round it in about 24,000 years of our earth – a celestial phenomenon which causes the backward movement of the equinoctial points around the zodiac.” The common explanation for this celestial phenomenon is precession, the ‘wobbling’ rotating movement of the earth axis.
Speleothems 2, 3, and 4 are head-like formations on the walls on the main pictograph panels. A small, low chamber, about 1.5m x 1.5m in size, is found at the east end of the main chamber and behind a wall on which Panels 3 and 4 are found.
The archaeology of northern Nicaragua, where Cueva La Conga is located, is virtually unknown.
It is, therefore, unclear if the people of this area were influenced by the Maya or other groups and were part of a more general Mesoamerican tradition or whether they developed a localized indigenous culture and ritual. The large entrance is approached by a footpath that climbs uphill on a steep slope.
Panels 1, 2, 3, and 4, as well as Speleothems 1, 2, 3, 4 are found on the walls of the main chamber and all receive some ambient light.
Panel 1 and Speleothem 1—very near the left side of the entrance—have the most exposure to the elements, including more moisture, some of which may come from ceiling drip.
