Barrier Canyon Style Petroglyphs, Emery County Utah
Within this faded group of Barrier Canyon Style petroglyphs is the Double Rainbow man. The figure is somewhat faded so I have run D-Stretch to bring it then recombined it with the original image to make the figure above. Read more
A detailed view of the High Gallery of Horseshoe Canyon, Wayne County Utah.
High Gallery of Horseshoe Canyon, Wayne County, Utah
Recorded August 2016
This is the first gallery in The Horseshoe (Barrier) Canyon section of Canyonlands National Park. It is on the East wall of the canyon far above the canyon floor. It has well preserved anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures in classic Barrier Canyon Style. There are also a number of pictographs faintly visible within the panel. The pictographs show up best in the model below.
BCS style art is thought to be about 4,000 years BP. There is a longer discussion of the arts age on the Great Gallery Model.

A fine, well preserved example of Barrier Canyon style pictographs. This Anthropomorphic figure is in the wall of a huge shelter in North Wash. The anthropomoph is accompanied by a featureless animal often caller her “dog.” The fine preservation is no doubt due to the location deep inside the shelter and the figure's location more than head height off the ground.
