 All American Man

     Within Canyonlands NP located in a small cave, is this famous pictograph. Painted in red, white and black pigments, (the black appears blue against the red sandstone), hence the name "All American Man". From carbon dating of the black charcoal pigment, this site was painted around 1260 AD, about the time the Anasazi begain migrating to the south, after a long period of drought in this area.

     Located not too far from the famous "Angel Arch" in Canyonlands National Park, is this small, but interesting and colorful rock art panel.

     This interesting panel, near Moab Utah, received it's name from the design which was painted on the main body of the center figure. What the orignal artists were depicting is unknown, possibly a chest plate? Although this panel has Barrier Canyon similarities, the original artist were probably Anasazi. Several Fremont petroglyph panels can be found on the canyon walls in the same vicinity.
