“Adrift in Time”

by: Sandra Brestel


“Many petroglyph sites were regarded as holy places and because of their abstract spiritual nature, interpretation of these ancient images is difficult. A mist of ancient magic seems to swirl around these petroglyphs. Their very existence is mysterious.
This site depicts a pair of anthropomorphic figures with flowing robes. Their robes fade into the rock surface, creating a feeling of floating movement. Their headdresses suggest that they are figures of importance. A highly detailed image of a spiral gives us further clues to this ancient place of magic. The spiral symbolizes migration or a journey. The outer markings around the spiral resemble footprints. Images like this are thought to represent astronomical signs, or a type of calendar. All of these carefully etched petroglyphs create a strong feeling of travel in the earthly sense or a journey within the spirit world.”
