Torgny,

that's very helpful to see the plates of images. Many of them appear similar to the Mogollon petroyglyphs and I'll try to find a representative one or two to post to show that similarity. Would that be OK in your thread?

Maybe the same aliens did the drawings in different places they visited all over the world, or more likely people all over the world enjoyed drawing familiar things.

Yes of course, I think many will be delighted, wherever you do your posting

Carving in rocks is a hard job. Technically, regardless of the content, the carvers, artists or what we shall call them, must have had the same difficulties; ending up in a similar form world

I very much look forward to your post s and your comparizon

Torgny

Thanks, Torgyy permission to post these comparative rock drawings done by the Jornado Mogollon people, thought to have be done from about 900 AD to 1400 AD, though they inhabited the area earlier than that. There are about 20,000 of the drawings in this area; most are located in a particular area but it's fun to hike to some of the out of the way ones.

These are in south-central New Mexico. These drawings seem much more primitive than the Tanum ones. I think no attempt has been made at preservation.

Wouldn't it be an interesting doctoral thesis topic to do a comparative study of rock drawings around the world (as well as fun to travel to all of them.)

No whales or ships in the Mogollon collection, but lots of lizards, snakes, sheep, people and whatever else they frequently encountered.

Thanks for posting this, Torgny. Aside from the messages they were intended to convey, the level of artistic expression and expertise that went into making these astonishing glyphs is mind-boggling. They were obviously done with a great deal of feeling and imagination and look almost like modern abstract art. Truly amazing stuff.
