Previously I showed the entrance to Panther Cave and the huge pictograph of the El Gato Grande (Panther). This is only a small portion of the wall of Panther Cave and these pictographs are in the Pecos River Style and over 4,000 year old. The figure on the right is a turtle like "Fantastic Creature" has a circular to oval body with fringes or hairy appendages and the two parrallel lines crossed by two perpendicular bars are distinguishing features of this mythical figure. It appears to be gliding through water. Next to it is a black shaman, several hip feathered shamans and a small anthropomorph with a crenelated arch (indicating it ascendance from the physical world to the spiritual "other world" which can be done via hyptnotic trace states induced by many form ie drums, music, dance, starvation and hallucinogenic drug including peyote and dratura both found locally in the area in the ancient times. This is part of a pictorial book I am doing on this area. Emile
