Petroglyphs represent one of mankind’s earliest forms of expression.
They exist wherever humans have passed; their forms are often discernable but their purpose and exact meaning remain largely a mystery. What continues to puzzle scholars, intrigue laypeople and inspire artists is how petroglyphs from dissimilar locations resemble others found halfway around the world. Regardless of their location, these simple forms portray the originality of mankind’s common struggle to understand the universe. Since their creation millennia ago, western civilization didn’t depict such complexity in such simple forms until the age of the modernist. We recontextualize these striking shapes so they remain effortless in form but complex in expression.
