The Serpent and the Sacred


There is a long tradition of rock art in the American Southwest stretching back thousands of years and it is upon this corpus of material that this book bases its discussion. Exploring and illustrating many examples of both petroglyphs and pictographs, Dennis Slifer looks at some of the major themes within the rock art traditions, focusing primarily on fertility, sexuality, death and regeneration, of humans, animals and the natural world. A final chapter looks at how these sites are protected and preserved.
