Cowboy Shelter Pictographs

Cowboy Shelter Pictographs

This isn’t a great photo, but it’s the best I could do with this very faded panel. I wanted to post a photo of this panel because it is the first example of Grand Canyon Polychrome / Esplanade Style pictographs that I have found. This is not a very well-known panel, but I managed to do enough research before my trip to the Arizona Strip so that we could locate it. It was an exciting find, but a difficult hike! If you look closely at the mostly white figures in this panel, you will notice that there appears to be some fine red detail that is present. There also appears to be red snake-like lines that connect all of the figures in this scene. You might need to click on the image to view a larger size to see these details. It’s very interesting to examine.
