Nice one....I really like it. The rock and the carving.That's a strange petroglyph figure, eh?With it's little legs, long arms....and weird body.Just thought though...maybe the legs aren't very short...the 'body' might be clothing that isquite long?I'll shut up now....before I start rambling......

Yes they are strange I can not find much about their meaning. I know the trapezoidal figures are a style of the Fremont Indians. I was told that some of these trapezoidal figures will point to water. I think this is true (at least in this case. If you look at the right arm of the figure you will note that the hand is in the shape of an arrowhead. That arrow is pointing directly to a small freshwater spring about 200 meters up the mountain. I'm not sure what the significance of the left arm or what it is holding. It also looks like this guy has tail feathers and three horns/tufts or ears on...

Mr Rainbow... what kind of a sense of proportion would you have if you were stoned on mescaline or ayahuasca? See: "SUPERNATURAL: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind" by Graham Hancock for a thorough discussion on ancient rock art.
