What are petroglyphs?
Petroglyphs are rock carvings that were made by prehistoric peoples. These carvings were achieved by chipping away at the rock surface using tools such as a stone chisel. Some of the beautiful images carved were of people, animals, birds and symbols.
Taíno petroglyphs, made by the Taíno Indians, are some of the oldest examples of petroglyphs in the world. They can be found in various locations in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Puerto Rico and Cuba to name a few.
We’ll be making two types of Taíno Petroglyphs, a pendant as well as a wall hanging, to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
