Ascending Sheep

Ascending Sheep

The Ascending Sheep pictograph panel is another of my favorites. Many times I am awestruck at the size of some of these Barrier Canyon Style panels because they are so large. This panel, on the other hand, is completely the opposite. The figures here are actually very small. Even though they are small, the details found in this scene are just amazing! Take, for example, the central figure surrounded by the tiny sheep. It is an anthropomorphic figure with what appears to be a sheep’s head, a snakes tongue and possibly bird feet. It’s also holding a bird-like figure on one hand and a tiny snake dangles from the other. Click on the image for a larger view so that you can admire all the fine details yourself!

    I just found RockArt.me recently (and immediately added it to my Google reader collection) and I love the photos–you handle this subject artfully. Your Ascending Sheep photo is beautiful. It’s one of the sites in the Swell that I haven’t visited, but maybe some day…. Wonderful website–thanks.
