Upper left, we appear to have an alien looking critter. Top middle, is an image consitant with 'the beast'. Upper right, shows an image of Hell. A horned 'devil' with a variety of unhappy faces around him. Lower left, a lion's face. Lower middle, a man in apparent pain. Lower right, an image of a man and another dragon in profile. The dragon appears to be holding the man's head.
The images in The Creek run from the sublime to the fearful. The carvings
are arranged so that each 'module' tells
a story. As the module is brought into focus with neighboring modules, the 'story' begins to fall together as with the
pieces of a puzzle.
The issue of how these images were carved came to mind. I climbed to the
top of the mountain over Father's
image. There, I found an area where it appeared that rock was loosened and then made into 'pounding stones'.
Generally, this is a stone of three to five pounds that has been ground to a point. To have made these carvings
was a monumental effort as the man would have had to hang off the cliffs and literally hammer the rock into the
shapes we see. I have found one such pounding stone and, given the time, could most likely find many more.
I'm told by Old One that these images were carved by the local indian tribe
in 500 B.C. If so, it is interesting
that many of the images are of caucasians and drawn at a time when American Tribes had not yet seen their
first white man. The image of a gray and the ufo give much cause for question as well the fact that these
characters are part and parcel of Christian ideology. The 'out of time' aspect of these renditions must give one
pause to ponder the subject of 'time' and those who walk upon it and within it.
