Dorris Ranch Rock Art Shelter 41PC595
A rock shelter with a large talus slope in east central Pecos County, Texas has been found to contain pictographs of hand prints, anthropomorphs, and possible zoomorphs. The rock shelter is located on the Dorris Ranch. This rock art is located on the smoke blackened ceiling of the rock shelter just below the middle caprock of Cretaceous limestone. Middens and mortar holes on a nearby pour-off of this cap rock appear to be associated with this rock shelter. Flint artifacts from the talus slope and the middens have indicated an age of late archaic. The anthropomorphs, however, appear to be younger in age because they are similar in style to the Tall Rockshelter pictographs of prehistoric age in the Davis Mountains as reported by the Center for Big Bend Studies. The negative hand prints and possible zoomorphs from this shelter are similar to late archaic rock art found in other reported sites in eastern Pecos County. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- President’s note: Hope all are survived the heat wave.
