Arch Creek Petroglyphs



Read All About It:

The Arch Creek Petroglyph site is a well-preserved and well protected example of an unusual aboriginal rock art style located in the Southern Blacks Hills area of northeastern Wyoming. The incised, long bodied stick figures are relatively uncommon compared with other motives and depictions such as shield figures and V-necked anthropomorphs. The Arch Creek Petroglyph site can yield important information on symbolism, composition, style and execution. It can also provide information on aspects of the cosmology of its creators.
