The Rock Art Pages

Rock surfaces employed by human artists preserve a graphic record of prehistory in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas. The southwest region of the United States has the greatest concentration of rock art in the Americas. In the dry desert environment, with its profusion of rock surfaces and shelters, an incomparable cultural legacy is preserved. 
The Rock Art Pages feature some of the best rock art from the desert West and Southwest; from Washington, Oregon, Utah, California, Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas. Some of the pages contain numerous graphics. Listed file sizes include all graphics except the page surfing buttons.
