The august gallery was made during my road trip through the Southwest of United States, where I found in three different sites of Arizona and Utah those beautiful well-preserved petroglyphs in rocks and stonewalls.
Click on the gallery and type “f” to get a fullscreen slideshow presentation.
These petroglyphs, called “newspapers”, were carved by Native Americans (Archaic, Anasazi, Fremont, Navajo, Anglo) during both the prehistoric and historic periods.
“Tse Hone” means in Navajo language “rock that tells a story”. The drawings on the rocks represent different animals, human figures, and symbols: pictures of deer, buffalo and pronghorn antelope. Some glyphs depict riders on horses, while others depict past events like in a “newspaper”. These written walls are like memories of the way of life of the people who farmed those valleys around 2,000 years ago, and invite to know and learn about them.
