THE ROCK ART

Rock art is one of the earliest forms of human expressions and provides an insight onto  how prehistoric and historic Indian cultures saw their world.

Rock art includes representations of humans animals and plants as well as abstract designs like spirals, circles, stars and dots.

Although we do not know the reasons for creating rock art, these images may be related to hunting rituals, water sources, migrations, astronomical events, and religious practices.

Pictograph (rock painting) and Petroglyphs (rock carvings) are the two most common types of rock art.

The red hand prints at this site are pictographs. The native people may have created hem by coating their hands in paint hen pressing them on the surface of the rocks to make the prints.

Paints were made by mixing powdered minerals , clays or charcoal with a liquid binder such as plant juices, saliva, or egg whites. The red pigment of these hand prints  came from hematite (iron oxide). Paint could be applied with fingers, hands or fiber brushes.

These handprints are a fragile f an ancient story and are easily damaged by  touching.  Keep the story intact y respecting this ancient site.
