These are more of the petroglyphs I have been working on.
The sheep is a petroglyph found in California on the Coso Range in Big Canyon Creek which is in China Lake. The Abstract X was found by my son in Phoenix, Az. The Birdman, as I call him, was found in Utah presumably done by the Anasazi. As you can see, I really liked him. He represents a shaman, so they say.       
The strange looking being was found in Big Canyon Creek in California and presumably represents a female shaman which is very rare to find. Then the spiral which is very common, I just took a different photo of it so you can see the colors better.

I found a website called  by  archeologist Donald Austin. Some of these petroglyph images I found there, some I saw first hand as I took a caravan out to the site, a guided tour by a museum out in Ridgecrest area. Donald Austin also does seminars with fellow archeologists on site. 

I have been busy at work, and two of these are going to be donated tonight at my 40th high school reunion, Yikes! I hope whoevr gets them will like them..........
