205. Symbols

Inside of the tower, the walls from top to bottom were covereded w/ symbols from the Hopi mythology and religious ceremonies and also with copies of prehistoric pictographs and petroglyphs.  One could spend hours looking at all of the symbols on the walls which ranged from very detailed to line drawings like the one depicted below.

  1. The white outlines are very cool! We didn’t make it to the tower on either of our 2 visits to the canyon…it’s great to see what was inside. Thanks!

  2. I can’t believe they are outlined, some of our Aboriginal Art dates back over 60,000 years and just being touched by sweaty fingers is enough to destroy it, treat it like snakes. Touch it only with your eyes.

  3. Great exposure of what had to be very difficult lighting.

  4. Wow. I don’t think this was easy to get, but it looks great.

  5. Amazing capture and detail. Imagine all the energy that must be in that tower. Beautiful!

  6. What a cool image – I’d definately print this one out and hang it on the wall!

  7. Amazing! They are very well preserved. Well captured Chesney!

  8. I bet this was tricky to capture! I’m loving these shots from your trip.
