When I see images pecked, carved and painted on canyon walls I often wonder about the prehistoric artists who chose that particular space and why did they carve these specific images. Is this image floating in some parallel dimension? What about the light behind it? Is it going into the light or coming out? Is it a child? Is he or she balancing between worlds? Is this symbolic of the delicate balance we create in our own lives?
