About this photograph: This famous petroglyph depicting Bighorn Sheep was captured by Ansel Adams in 1958, located at Monument Valley, Arizona. Found in all parts of the globe except Antarctica, many petroglyphs are dated to approximately the Neolithic and late Upper Paleolithic boundary, about 10,000 to 12,000 years ago, if not earlier. Although there are many Anasazi Petroglyphs in Monument Valley, the ones photographed by Ansel are thought to be some 700 years old. The running Bighorn sheep are particularly striking and can be seen in a niche below the Eye of the Sun, another historic rock formation. Monument Valley is a Tribal Park owned and managed by the Navajo Nation. This is a superb example by Ansel Adams, printed in a glossy 16x20 inch format and in “Excellent” condition.
