This paper presents a new Sardinian neolithic rock-cut tomb of domus de janas type that shows, in the main room, the reproduction of a double-pitched roof, as imitation of a dwelling. The reproduction is realistic in style, completely painted of red, and can be related to the nearest Painted Tomb of S’Incantu in the same Putifigari area. It is discussed on the meaning of such decorations inside rock-cut tombs that reproduce rooms of rectangular plan. However, no sure traces of rectangular huts were found in neolithic dwellings of Sardinia, except the discussed case of Serra Linta (Sedilo). Author thinks that it’s more probable that the reproductions of rectangular houses with double-pitched roof, inside domus de janas, rather represent a cult building, like the famous “Red Temple” one that it was built in the top surface of Monte d’Accoddi altar, near Sassari.
