Piedras Marcadas Canyon -- Animal-Like Petroglyphs

Above are a few animal-like petroglyphs found pecked into the rocks. More are here. I wondered what the difference was between Petroglyphs & Pictographs, which resembles the difference between sculpture & painting: petroglyphs are images carved, pecked or scratched into stone, while pictographs are rocks painted with natural pigments over stone, like a canvas.


Some geometric petroglyphs here.
