A petroglyph (/ˈpɛtrəɡlɪf/ or /ˈpɛtroʊɡlɪf/) is an image created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, picking, carving, or abrading, as a form of rock art. Outside North America, scholars often use terms such as “carving”, “engraving”, or other descriptions of the technique to refer to such images. Petroglyphs are found worldwide, and are often associated with prehistoric peoples. The word comes from the Greek prefix petro-, from πέτρα petra meaning “stone”, and γλύφω glýphō meaning “carve”, and was originally coined in French as pétroglyphe.

All of the designs were taken from real petroglyphs and runes.  All of them were made by hand in 2020 by one of our board members. The flagstones were part of a deconstructed patio/sidewalk that was dumped at the dam site. A local 501c3 cleaned up the dumped load, and instead of sending the flagstone pieces to the dump, it was decided that it would be put to use to help us raise money for the visitor’s center at the St. Francis Dam site. The idea to make the faux petroglyphs and runes was hatched.  Because these are recycled chunks of flagstone, there may be some cement noticeable on the piece, stains, or other stuff that may have dropped upon it when it was a patio.  Note: We cannot tell you where the real petroglyphs are located.
