Ayo Pictographs

Ancient Pictographs in Aruba

Yesterday’s image of the “Kong Rock” was in Aruba’s Ayo Rock Formations as are the two images above. These pictographs were carved into the stone by the native Arawak people and were thought to be of spiritual significance. Fortunately, they were preserved in a shallow cave, and the entrances are blocked by strong iron bars to prevent vandalism and destruction of these priceless works of art. May they endure and continue to fascinate wayfarers long after the photos posted above have faded into the mists of time.
