New Rock Art Research in Utah

Rock art researchers investigating Fremont rock art at Utah’s Black Dragon Canyon have deciphered strange rock art images which defied explanation till now. Researchers in the past said that the images looked like an ancient animal.  The researchers used cutting edge technology; DStretch and a portable X-ray fluorescence device. They found that the paintings show five separate images, including a tall bug-eyed person, a smaller person, a sheep, a dog and a serpentlike figure.

The study was published in the August issue of the journal Antiquity.
