The symbol in the photo is an indian design, there are a few good books on the subject, The Rocks Begin to Speak by Levan Martineau is one of the best also Mallery wrote many excellent books on indian symbols. This does not mean that they are not treasure symbols, but it is unlikely. I have studied the indian symbols as well as Spanish treasure symbols and can tell you that they did use such symbols. Take a read of the oak island treasure and you will see the use of many undeciphered symbols that were used for some sort of land surveying. There was an extensive black market underground during the Spanish quest for gold in the new world.The documented proof of this comes from another book written by Antonio Vazquez De Espinosa, a Jesuit in 1620 titled "description of the Indies". anyway sorry I got carried away I have more info if your interested.
