Welcome to the gecko's cave! Since I'm fascinated by pictographs and petroglyphs, I thought it would be fun to discuss the meanings of different examples of rock art here. Let your imaginations run wild or add any info you might have from books, teachers, archaologists, oral traditions,ect.
This first picture is from Arizona taken last year when we visited the Deer Valley Rock Art Center. To me I say it is two deer and although one could say maybe they are fighting since they are facing each other, I am romantic and tend to believe they are a pair and are "kissing" or courting. Many believe petroglyphs are a form of "hunting magic" that attracts the animals to an area or shows respect or gratitude towards the animals. I think this could be a glyph symbolizing the union of two deer in the hopes of many more to come! Also I wonder if it is maybe just a sign of a person named "Two Deer". I have also heard that in some native traditions the deer are considered a sign of gentleness. I love this petroglyph!
