Wow! Ancient graffiti!
I tried to enrol on a stone carving course at The British Museum, alas it was fully-booked but there's nothing to stop me from drawing some designs, is there?

Julie, yes, these ones particularly look like graffiti to me too! Pictographs would definitely be much easier to do - just be careful where you do it so you aren't accused of defacing :-). I keep thinking of trying one on a certain rock in my garden...

Graffiti - because this area is so accessible to the public, it may be that some markings have been added in recent years. The NV Rock Art Foundation has studied the area recently and will publish a report in the near future. It is a fascinating place! Thanks for your interest.

Loretta, thanks for taking the time during your vacation to drop in and comment! I look forward to the Foundation's report.
