Photographing the Shamans Gallery

This will be my last photo from the Shamans Gallery for the week. I figure you’ve seen enough of this outstanding panel posted here already. I just wanted to post this last photo from the Spirit Shelter showing my friend Jared photographing part of the panel to help give it some scale. This photo also helps give you a feel for the setting of these pictographs in the canyon.

Here’s a closer look at a small portion of the Shamans Gallery. This part features one of the better preserved sheep pictographs contained in the panel. If you look closely, you can see a fainter figure that the sheep was painted over. There are a lot of layers of paintings at this site, which means it was probably an important place for a long time.

Right Side of the Shamans Gallery

Since I posted a photo yesterday of the left side of the Shamans Gallery, I figured that I would post one from the right side today. That way you can get a nice overview of what most of the panel looks like. I guess this is going to be the Shamans Gallery week, so I’ll be posting some close-ups of interesting areas over the next few days.
