Texas pictographs, cont’d…

Continuing our journey around this magnificent cave….

 

arrowhead

burning bush

Ladder

 

The image I titled ‘burning bush’ is the only one that makes any sense to me at all – to my eyes, it looks like what’s left of a stick figure, standing next to a fire!  The other 2 mystify me!  At this portion of the cave, this series of artwork seemed to change a little, was more random, if that makes sense.

Fascinating, nonetheless!

  1. This is a great series, Mr. B!
    I can’t believe how well these have stood the test of time!

    • The vivid colors never fail to amaze me, especially considering some of the paintings are very, very old. Sadly, in this particular cave, you can see where part of the cave ceiling has fractured over time and lost about a 1 or 2 yard square section of the roof’s artwork. I’m just glad I was able to document what was there now in case we lose more as time goes by. Thanks!!

  2. These are fascinating posts and images of the pictographs.

  3. Wow, so much to consider. The ladder is interesting. And the fire with the figure is so perfectly depicted.
