    Re: Any Idea's What these signs could Be ?

    Welcome to the forum Desert Sands
    Thanks for posting the pic, the majority of course are Amerindian Petroglyps
    however over to the left on the edge of rock,is some much newer marks, AND
    they are carved in "relief", something the Ameridians did not do, as far as i know.
    and these marks are all similar, 4 in number, and mysterious, as I have never seen
    this shape for spanish signs,. They might be representing items of value, as in a
    beaver pelt, albeit most beaver pelts where stretched in a circular fashion!

    I will do a little research and see what I can find in my notes, also what is casting
    that shadow over the panel?? That might be a key question,if it is a rock - and what
    position was it in at noon?, I see the 1:27pm marker on the photo.

    I have seen the wavy marks left my amerindians many times all over west, once
    an panel over 20 feet long, near a high point in a mountain chain, it would have
    taken a hundred years to carved all those repetitious wavy lines on that rock.
    I have come to believe that is was 'shamistic' and part of a ritual for a successful
    hunt,. and the lines represented the mountains that had to travel over to look
    for game, taking farther and farther away as the game became scarcer and scarcer
    as the game began to be thinned out. It is just a theory or thought after seeing so
    many of them,,at any rate ,the marks over at the left, and the shadow are the key here
    good luck, keep us posted.
    we true treasure hunters are happy to help all we can!~

    The marks on the left definatly appear to be of a later age than the other, however they also appear to be native in origin as they are "pecked" into the stone presumably with another stone. i have yet to see spanish or mexican pecking. they had access to iron tools and was considerably more efficient to scratch their markings into the stone. dosent mean they didnt do any pecking as to disguise them tho. to me they seem to represent a number of vessels such as water jugs or somthing similar

    Possibly. I see a representation of terrain and a trail in to the approximate location. What is there is anyone's guess. Obviously someone spent quite a bit of time and for a reason.

    Native? Anyone here versed in native Saudi Arabian petroglyphs? I ain't.

    i am not versed in native Saudi Arabian petroglyphs, i did look around
    and found these links, hope they help you
    your rock art/petroglyphs, has a story feel, to it
    while looking around for info, i thought of something, i think in your country,
    you read right to left, so would the rock art/petroglyphs, be read the same way

    Re: Any Idea's What these signs could Be ?

    The more recent markings on the left side shows that four persons or groups journeyed into this area coming in on two different routes. They were searching for the "egg shaped" circle in the center of photo. The line leading to the circle means the spot where the trail ended or a tight place in a canyon where the trail would appear to end but could open up into a hidden area. The wavy lines they crossed were either hills of maybe rivers. They were perhaps looking for a a place of their ancestors. (some of the marks appearing older might confirm this) It could mean it took them four journeys to find the right area.

    I would guess that we are looking only at a portion of the panel....I would guess one might read it from many directions in order to learn the rest of the story.
    ( do not assume that all is left to right or...right to left)

    Re: Any Idea's What these signs could Be ?

    Has anyone taken a REEEEEEAL CLOSE look at that rock? Please bear with me on this for a minute and look at my marked up copy of the photo. Now, doesn't that figure in the yellow oval look like a man using a metal detector? and doesn't the squiggly line work in the polygon look like the path made by a detector operator as he / she is swinging their machine over an area of search??
    I'm just saying...............................

    Hey Short Stack....I could be wrong and you could be right....if you are: then my egg shaped circle becomes a comet with trailing debris that is going to take your metal detecting person out of the picture. Can you decipher the brand of dector in use?

    Oddrock,
    Actually, that looks more like a spermatozoa than a comet. As far as the detector brand, it's probably a cheap copy manufactured in the Philipines. When I was going to Riyadh back in the early 1980s, all the tape "zooks" were filled with pirated music tapes brought in from the Philipines. Heck, the pirates even copied the jacket photos to use on THEIR tape cases.

    Shortstack,

    Since it looks more like spermatozoa to you then you must see the shadow as a *****. Either way it still means you guy is screwed!

    Now that you mention it; that shadow DOES appear to be made by a richard-head.

    I'm still curious as to where that "1:27 PM marker" is located on that rock.
