Petroglyphs

Full panel petroglyphs
I like to call this one 'The Hunter'

Another view of the upper portion

 All of these petroglyph photographs were taken in Southern Utah. I will not reveal the exact location of any petroglyph due to the continued destruction of these beautiful historical etchings left to us by the Anasazi and their predecessors.

 When I go out to photograph a landscape I always check to see what petroglyphs are in the area for me to visit. I like to sit and admire these etchings and wonder what many of them mean or symbolize. I've seen some pretty good artistry particularly when you think these guys were etching these into stone. Below is one of my favorite panels that I photographed. It has so many things going on. Anyway I hope you enjoy these, I will show you a few more in the future.
