Rock Art: Big Horn and Bear

You can tell how old some of these pictographs are by the the changes to the rock surface. If you look closely, you can see that there is a stain and some erosion on the rock that covers part of the big horn sheep. This kind of change can take hundreds or even thousands of years. I am also fascinated by the shape of the bear. It is identical to Hopi fetish designs currently being made by artists.
