"Holy Ghost and Companions"
April 2011, Horseshoe Canyon, Canyonlands National Park, Utah
The pictographs in this image are commonly referred to as "The Holy Ghost and Companions". These life-sized (the tallest is 7') figures are located about 20 feet to the left of the infamous panel known as "The Great Gallery". It is believed that this rock art was created 4000 years ago by nomadic desert dwellers of the time. The amazing condition of the paintings are no doubt due to the very remote location of Horseshoe Canyon.
