Sharpsburg Rock Art Site - 23MA7
Bird track petroglyphs (carved rock art) at the Sharpsburg site were reported by Diaz-Granados and Duncan (2000:119). The site is situated
on private property and is not open to the public; the petroglyphs are virtually impossible to locate because of the
dense vegetation and lichens.
Bird tracks at the Sharpsburgh Site.
A large bird track petroglyph is clear and a smaller bird track is just to the right of it.
Lichens obscure the Sharpsburg rock art.
Lichens partially obscure a group of thunderbird at the Sharpsburg site. The petroglyph
on the left edge was described as an "oar-shaped motif" and may have sexual symbolism (Diaz-Granados and
Duncan 2000: 168, Figure 5.46d).
