These are Shoshone Indians in a mountain drainage running out of the Wind Rivers at their highest point. Some petroglyphs looked like birds or insects in addition to those in the more usual hominid form. They are considerably different from the ones portrayed in "By the Ancient Trails They Passed," although that took place only thirty miles away from this location.
The Shoshone have no idea who created these; the petroglyphs were there before the Shoshone began to record their history. One of their elders was quoted as saying that they find new ones every spring when the snow melts. They think that the spirits carve their own images in the rocks.

U.S., International Shipping and Local Delivery is calculated after purchase and billed separately. This allows us to make sure we are not over charging you on shipping estimates since each piece of art can require special packaging that drastically alters the overall dimensions and weight. We will not offer estimates on shipping prior to purchase due to this. Artwork must be boxed and ready to ship before we can calculate shipping.
