Intestine Man

If you look closely at the center of the three figures, you will see why this particular rock art is called "Intestine Man." The location is not marked on a highway, consistent with the idea that too many people will destroy these priceless treasures of ancient rock art. In contrast to petroglyphs which are made by chipping away at the rock coatings, these are painted on the rock using a variety of natural substances. The entire figure is about 18 inches high and is located about 20 feet up the side of the cliff. I used a 500 mm lens to take this photo.
