Petroglyph - rock art, carved from stone (rock art) of prehistoric times, petroglyphs are engraved, scratched or stamped. Petroglyphs are found all over the world, except for Antarctica. The images often hold great cultural and religious significance for the communities from which they originate. Recognizing the meaning of petroglyphs is possible, if at all, only with a very good knowledge of the culture in question. The study of the meaning of petroglyphs is the subject of archeology and ethnology.
There are three main petroglyph techniques that can often be used for the same motif:
• Engraving - applying thin lines to the rock with a hard object;
• Scraping refers to the indentation of surfaces with a rubbing motion;
