The Parowan Gap Zipper Glyph Calendar, Utah
*UTAH ~ Parowan Gap is a passage through the Red Hills near Cedar City. It has a marvelous selection of petroglyphs, of which the most amazing is this solar calendar which marks the seasons as the sun passes through the gap. For more information on this calendar see www.parowangap.org/ These petroglyphs were carved approximately 1000 years ago by the ancestors of the Southern Paiute or by the people of the Sevier-Fremont culture.
Petroglyphs in Russia. Lower Amur River (border between Siberian Russian and Inner Manchuria in China) at Sakachi-Alyan. Some petroglyphs date back to 12000 BCE. The tribes settling along the Amur produced the human-like mask and a “skeleton” style – both reflecting a type of shamanism. There are about half a million of petroglyphs known in Siberia and the Far East of Russia. (rw)
