"Coso" Style Pictographs of the Southern Sierra Nevada


Two recently discovered pictograph sites have similarities indicating common origin to the "Coso" style petroglyphs identified by Grant, Baird and Pringle (1968). These sites were located during field reconnaissance in the Southern Sierra Nevada. The two sites appear unique for two reasons: (1) they date to the late prehistoric and historic periods which previously have not been noted as containing "Coso" style rock art; and (2) "Coso" style pictographs are exceedingly rare and are unknown for these periods.
