Whitley, an archaeologist specializing in the study of prehistoric art and religion, interprets the symbolism of California's ancient rock art that ranges from complex polychrome cave paintings and deeply incised designs on basalt canyon walls to large earthen figures along the terraces of the Colorado River. Tapping rich ethnographic information, he demonstrates that these pictographs were not created simply for artistic expression, but were deliberately intended to represent a relatively few number of specific messages. Color photographs depict such things as vision questing, sexuality, the mythic past, life crises, altered states of consciousness, and more. Lacks an index. Oversize: 10.75x12.5<">. Annotation c.
