  • Tolar Petroglyph Site



    Read All About It:

    The Tolar site consists of 32 rock art panels extending for more than 150 meters along the south and southeast face of a large sandstone outcrop. It contains a distinctive collection of Protohistoric and Historic petroglyphs created by Native American groups inhabiting or traveling through southwestern Wyoming. The artistic styles and motifs are characteristic of Shoshone and Comanche, but may also be related to Arapaho, Ute, and Athapaskan speakers such as the Navajo. Cultural elements and symbolic structures present include the distinctive turtle motif, well-preserved representations of Plains Biographical Style horses and warriors, spirit bear symbolism, large-headed anthropomorphs, shield-bearing warriors, and rectangular bodied anthropomorphs.
