How cute; what do you think the etching of the person depicts? I see the "sun" is shining, so what's with the thing over the person's head? :/

It's a known fact that 'astronomical
phenomena' almost surely are represented
in some of the Southwest's prehistoric
rock art. For example, insofar as observations made by Pueblo sunwatchers, this etching SUGGESTS that something happened to
the sun: MOST possibly a solar eclipse!
The 'person' is covering up their head,
because they're probably SCARED out of
their WITS to see the sun suddenly
'disappear.' In other words, "Please don't
take my sunshine away!!!" I love petroglyphs.
I have seem them many times in the desert.
