Photographer's Note

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.
