Artist's Description

This secret pictograph portray life around an ancient dome home.

This Pictograph has been dated as 6-8,000 year old and locals lived in “pit houses” to survive cold winters. They dug into earth – two feet into ground and planted poles in ground to support wood frames and cut 6-foot cattail leaves in bundles to lay on top & around to repel winds and rain/snow. They also blended into landscape! door openings always face sun to east? Fire pit was near center and most packed mud around sides to cut winds; but smoke easily lifted up on top.

The white is an attempt to remove vandalism (“1988”). Oddly, some people are idiot-“monkey see-monkey do?” They thought it was neat someone wrote on a cliffs and had to covered it with their own scribbles – when they have paper at home. These ancients did not!

This pictograph is hidden in “Picture Gorge” in John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in central Oregon
