Petroglyph from Moonflower Canyon, near Moab, Utah
The whole side of the Virginia stone which includes the human line figure, 9cm. Adam Arkfeld interprets a possible horse neck and head figure in the overall outline of the stone, looking left.
An alternate non-figurative interpretation here could be as "branching lines," a known rock art form.
Incised zoomorphic stone identified by Adam Arkfeld, 8cm
It seems possible the right end of the stone was given a slope representative of a proboscidean trunk.
