This is another panel from the Pinturas Rupestres outside of Mulege. It lies immediately above the panel I posted earlier, "Dance of a Successful Hunt."
The area was once home to a type of Bighorn Sheep, although I am entirely unsure what animal is depicted here.
As with the other panel, there are handprints here, too -- look in the lower right corner. We were all touched by the "presence" of the long-forgotten people who painted these walls. Nothing is known of them, and yet, they are here. Their hands reach to us through the ages to touch the present day.

What an exotic place! The pre-historic rock art is difficult to preserve. I believe, the whole area is peaceful and amazing as well. Thanks for sharing these unusual photos.

Touching post, I look at it and there is someone trying to communicate from the very far past, telling us the way they lived, the animals they hunted
I believe the animal is a kind of deer, because it has long horns

Scenes like this do send a shiver down my spine, like you mention in your note, its like somebody from long long ago is reaching through time. For all our best efforts in modern times to be remembered forever, nothing can compete with these painting and the messages they left behind. To image the world as it was then is an amazing though. Beautiful place, and such incredibly long history.
Thanks for sharing this place, true Trekearth material, with an added sense of historical wonder.
All the best

Nice work of art that has survived millennia. The artifacts introduced to this photo remind me of the artifacts introduced by my DX6340.

Dear Russ, these drawings on the stone itself are very ancient testimony of the past in that area, they were made by the natives and show the life and animals of that period. Here deers were painted
Good pov and excellent resolution, all the best, regards
