Poco Kachina Picture

Series: Mystical Journeys
Medium: Watercolor
Size: 11" x 15"

This is the first of this set. The Kachina Mask is from a photo taken at Heuco Tanks National Park in El Paso Texas. The park contains many hidden pictographs like these. The other one in this set is Forgotten Falls

A unique legacy of lively and fantastic rock paintings greets the visitor at the "tanks." From Archaic hunters and foragers of thousands of years ago to relatively recent Mescalero Apaches, Native Americans have drawn strange mythological designs and human and animal figures on the rocks of the area. The site's notable pictographs also include more than 200 face designs or "masks" left by the prehistoric Jornada Mogollon culture. Hueco Tanks was the site of the last Indian battle in the county. Apaches, Kiowas, and earlier Indian groups camped here and left behind pictographs telling of their adventures. These tanks served as watering places for the Butterfield Overland Mail Route.
