Petroglyph of the Sun

This is a petroglyph of the sun showing the vernal equinox, the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox. Looking above the symbols to the left, there is a man wearing a headdress of two horns. This could be a depiction of the shaman that made the sun's pegroglyph. This ancient art can be observed in Parowan Gap, Utah and is free to the public. It is estimated that this set of petroglyphs is approximately 1000 years old and were inscribed by the ancient Fremont Indians.
