Prior to 2009, the literature dedicated to Tambun Rock Art is relatively limited and most of them are the field reports produced by Matthew (1959, 1960) and Faulstich (1984, 1985). Mathew’s investigation in Gua Tambun identified approximately 80 forms of rock art and unearthed 49 stone implements, said to have been attributed to “Hoabihnian” culture (approximately 10,000-5,000 years ago and varies across different region in Southeast Asia) whereas the Faulstich recorded more rock art and reported the discovery of Neolithic cord-marked pottery sherds.

In 2009, an extensive archaeological research was conducted by Tan and Chia (2010) and a total of more than 600 forms of rock art scattered through 11 panels across the wall were documented. According to Tan and Chia, Tambun Rock Art consist predominantly of zoomorphs (animal forms), anthropomorphs (human shapes), geometric features, botanic shapes and abstract shapes.
