Barrier culture
The rock art, the Barrier Canyon Style, usually consists of larger than life size antrhopomorphic (manlike) forms. The identifying characteristic of these figures is hollowed eyes or missing eyes, the frequent absence of arms and legs, and the presence of vertical body markings. This panel is characterized by at least 19 painted antropomorphs with bug-eyes, antennae, earrings, snakes in hand, and leg-less torsos. The "ghost-like" images, may represent shamanistic art associated with ritual activities of the Archaic people.
