"Custom Rock Art Panels"

 


     Custom re-creations are panels build specifically to match and enhance the rock art figures rather than a rectangular panel upon which the figures are painted or etched. Panels include more detail in the rock art as well as the detail of the surface of the rock, such as edges, cracks and the rock structure or shape. Custom panels may be single or multi-layered.
     Due to the complexity of creating this type of panel, they are priced on a time and material basis only. Please contact me for pricing on custom sizes.

Cave Valley Man
CVM1/1


     This is the site where the "Cave Valley Style" of rock art received its name, being located in an area known as Cave Valley near Virgin in south-central Utah. The heads, bodies and extremities were painted in trapezoidal or triangular shapes which define this style of rock art, although the largest of the figures has more human-like features including long slender arms and legs with feet and toes. This is an excellent site found in a cave which is 80 feet or more in depth and contains numerous paintings of anthropomorphs, mammals, birds and possibly insects. There maybe upwards of 100 figures in this cave painted in a variety of pigments including black, white, red, brown and yellow.
     This single panel is highly detailed to re-create this unique style of rock art using the same type of pigments which the orignal artist used.
