Fremont culture rock art in Northern Utah. “It inhabited sites in what is now Utah and parts of Nevada, Idaho and Colorado from AD 700 to 1300. It was adjacent to, roughly contemporaneous with, but distinctly different from the Anasazi culture.” from Wikipedia . Please note that current usage prefers the term Puebloan Culture to Anasazi.

    interesting figures back then, Dick….they look ’armless enough! How exciting to be able to view such ancient works….wonder if they had a RockBubble back then?

  • Seems this may have been it. The sandrock is reddish, oddly enough, making it RedRockBubble… The darker color is called desert varnish, a black layer that accumulates over time, likely somewhat of an organic process working on the iron oxide present in the sandstone and dust.
    Most the images are done in this way, where the thing is drawn by pecking out the black, but a few are the other way around, where the “negative space” is pecked out and the image left in black. Seems that current visual artists have only rediscovered knowledge of negative space that was understood by a few, hundreds of years ago. Curious that…

    Fascinating rock art, so different to ours here ;)
    I wonder why they didn’t bother with the arms!

  • This style is a bit different than most. I wonder if it depicts ceremonial dress or maybe some kind of battle armour.
