Pictograph rock art at the Palatki site in Loy Canyon, Arizona. Most of the artwork is attributed to the Sinagua, who inhabited the area between 650AD and 1200AD, but in some cases artwork from other time periods is interspersed and overlayed with the Sinaguan. More primitive etchings date as far back as 6000 years, while a few markings were made by ancestral Apache more recently (confirmed by tribal elders). Pictographs are painted images, whereas petroglyphs are etchings performed by abrading the rock with the edge of another. Pictographs at this site are typically in white, red and black, or kaolin, hematite and charcoal. Archeologists believe that much of the art at the Palatki site relates to the dreamstate imagery of ancient Shamans. This image is presumed to be of a Shaman holding an insect or a prickly pod from a Datura plant. The Datura is hallucinogenic if smoked (inferring the origin of the dreamstate), poisonous when ingested. The zig zag line relates to one's soul and life journey. Yavapai County, Arizona, 2013.
