Archeology - Utah's Rock Art

Tucked in canyons, carved on builders, the rock art of Utah has led me on an odyssey through time from a 19th century, Utah Indian's rendition of the passing of the pipe near Ouray, to sandstone masterpieces that may be thousands of years old. These paintings are in Barrier Canyon itself, now officially know as Horseshoe Canyon. Ghostly figures lend an ethereal air to the spectacular place. The group at far left (time 2:01), popularity know as the "Holy Ghost and His Family", appears in three dimensions, unusual in rock art. A spatter technique empharsizes the otherworldly appearance of the life-size main figure. University of Utah archaeologist date the fragment between 4650 and 4350 B.C. The intact figurine was found near a sandal dated at 6925 B.C., but Jesse Jennings, professor of anthropology and the dean of Utah archaeologists, regards the association as possibly misleading.
