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.
