Canebrake Skeleton Pictographs

Hidden in a granite rock shelter near an ancient Kumeyaay village site is a set of unique pictographs. Most of these pictographs are typical of the La Rumorosa Style but what is unusual here are the skeleton figures. I have not seen them anywhere else in the Kumeyaay territory.

Some speculate that these skeleton figures symbolize a shaman reaching a state of trance, the death of the physical body, and entering into the spiritual world.

I’m not giving directions to this special and sacred place. Please respect it.
