The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event.

When caves were discovered in the state of Arizonia, some had markings on the walls, and some didn’t. Tourists in future could enrich the area.

John and George started inspecting Cave Number 10.

“John, there are no petroglyphs on these walls.”

“You have little imagination, George. I can see them.”

“Where, I don’t see even one?”

“They’re here in my mind, George, in my mind.”

With that, John pulled out small carving tools and natural paint. He first put his hand on the rock and sprayed it with paint. Next, he carved a man figure holding a spear pointed at a buffalo with large horns. Other animals and figures followed.

In the summer of 2014, Brenda led a group into Cave Number 10.

“As you see, the cave dweller drew a petroglyph of a hunt. Notice the hunter with the spear. The artist signed his work with his handprint.”
