Procession Panel, H1629
Hundreds of pictographs and petroglyphs can be found throughout the American Southwest, but the Procession Panel stands out as one of the most detailed forms of rock art.  Found on a wall along an eighty-mile long Monocline called Combs Ridge, the panel depicts 179 human-like forms coming from three different directions and converging on a central circle.  It’s thought to represent a ceremonial gathering or migration story.  The panel also includes mountain sheep, elk and snakes.
