The article presents the results of a preliminary experimental and traceological examination of the famous White Horse site located in the north-western part of the Minusinsk Basin. The site is interesting because of the ambiguity of the chronological interpretation based on stylistic analysis. In 2018, experimental-traceological and photogrammetric works and sampling of calcite incrustations were carried out at the site to clarify their age and the image engraving technology. At the first stage of works, the authors have come to the conclusion that the preliminary hypothesis on the used technic «rubbing the background on the rocky surface», is not confirmed. The authors plan to conduct special studies to define the technique of making the image, which likely provide a new insight into the chronology of the image.
