An intriguing slab of rock art from a Denver collection. The slab was inherited by the Colorado collector from a Utah family ancestor sometime in the 1800s.
The artifact consists of an unusual figure in the upper left with what appears to be another figure with a bow shooting a fleeing deer. The style/form/provenance of this art strongly suggests it was carved by the Freemont Native Americans who lived in Utah around 1000 AD. Many other forms of petroglyph appear on canyon walls and sandstone overhangs in the region. Abrasion scratches, notches, dings; some exposure discoloration along surface. It is believed that many of the petroglyphs of the Freemont Culture were magical representations of what the carvers wanted to happenlike a successful deer hunt.
