Monument Valley Tribal Park...Utah/Arizona

Tim, the Navajo guide, certainly knew of some fascinating, hard-to-find spots around the a modest petroglyph adorned a cliff seemed that either meat or wool was on the artist's mind

Appears to be an athletic creature too! Fascinating indeed!

I bet it had to do with both. Indians were supposedly known for using all parts of an animal. Wonderful story telling image and very unusual and, of course, very nicely done. ~BV~

PRobably a little of both. What a great find! :)

A wonderful find which shows how deep rooted our needed to make images is. V

Nice image!!!

Nice one, and goes to show that people have been drawn to sheep for art longer than we may think.

Truly incredible primitive art. Amazing it's lasted so many years. Wonderful capture of it. V.

Fascinating art, well photographed. I fins it interesting how similar it is to art I have seen in places as diverse as Australia and Europe. There is a lot of this in Baja Californium, much it undisturbed and difficult to access. "V"

Excellent comp of the stone wooly beast. V

Lovely presentation of the artwork! I like the artists conception of the wooly creatures. V
Carol How03-Nov-2012 18:11
It is wonderful! Have never seen a "wooly" creation before :)

Great find, nicely captured. Very interesting to see the artist(s) keep the oxide patina to create detail.

I pays to have a guide! Nice capture.

beautiful testimony

I agree Steve - 'come and see my etchings' sounds a good chat up line! On a serious note I really like these sort of artifacts, it really fires up my imagination. Well captured.

Or maybe a young artist trying to impress his girlfriend - with things other than wool and meat on his mind :o)) BV
