Here are a set of pictographs that are very similar in appearance. I’m not quite sure what they are, but they appear to be some sort of horned shield-like figures. They are both found in the Book Cliffs of Utah but are in different canyons. The funny thing about both of them is that I managed to stumble upon them when I was out searching for other pictographs. The one above I came across yesterday while I was searching for a ‘birthing scene’ pictograph and the one below I found a few months ago while searching for a very unique owl pictograph.
