Meaning of Rock Art

Although the specific meaning of rock art may never be known, it can be said that much of this art was religious in origin and that most of it was related to shamans' or medicine mens' supernatural experiences.

Editor's Note:

Since there seems to be no verbal or written link between the people that made these designs and contemporary times, the thoughts and prayers of the artists is unknown and untraceable. Any interpretation is probably speculation.
