Sun House Figure near top of Cliff above Talus House

To thumbnail


This is a drawing of a the image which Hewett labeled Sun House in Frijoles Canyon.  This figure of a sun is pecked high above the small talus ruin on the cliff face, and could only be reached by descending the rock ledge from above.  The animal above the sun symbol looks almost like a kangaroo rat, either standing in the background or jumping over the sun.

This drawing forms part of the Bandelier National Monument rock art drawings collection M 198 at the Center of Southwest Studies.
