Photo: Native Petroglyphs Utah

A mosaic of native petroglyphs on Newspaper Rock near Canyonlands National Park in Utah, USA.

Newspaper Rock in Utah, USA is decorated with native petroglyphs that were engraved into the sandstone and may date back as far as 2,000 years ago. These petroglyphs are symbols that represent the native cultures of the Fremont, Anasazi, Navajo and Anglo people.There is no known way of dating these prehistoric native petroglyphs and most of them are not clearly understood. They are a standard form of many of the native sites throughout the United States but there is no proof that the figures represent story telling, doodling, hunting, native tribe symbols or something totally different.Without a thorough understanding of the petroglyphs, the imagination is the only tool you have to figure out what they might mean. Some tourists sit for hours examining these works of art and still walk away no further ahead in the translation.These particular petroglyphs are one of the best collections of Native rock art throughout the United States and are very accessible from the main road of Canyonlands National Park in Utah. ... continue below the picture...
