Anthropomorphs

Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP012: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. Small anthropomorph with horns, outstretched arms, and an oval within its torso. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP015: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. Possibly an anthropomorph with a long neck. Could also represent a star or some other symbol. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP024: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. Considerably weathered. Appears to be a male anthropomorph. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP027: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. An unusual figure that appears to be an anthropomorph with a head inside of a helmet. The helmet has two projections that look like antennae, giving the figure the appearance of a space man. The right arm is holding a stick-like object. The left arm is cocked and give the impression of resting on the hip. There are legs, but no feet. Because of the fresh look of the cuts this may be a more modern work and intended to deceive. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP031: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. A pair of Fremont style anthropomorphs in a "brotherly pose," the the trapezoidal and triangular shaped bodies. Both have slightly raised heads atop thick necks. The one on the right has horns. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP036: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. An anthropomorphic figure, on the left, that has gracefully bent raised arms and spread legs, giving the stick figure the impression of dancing. There is also a graphic image to the right that looks to be some sort of counting device. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP042: Found along the Court of Ceremonies Trail. A pair of anthropomorphs. The figure to the right appears to be of the Fremont style, with a square head with horns atop a trapezoidal torso with no legs or arms. It is wearing a necklace. The second figure, to the left, is a bit smaller with a round head containing concentric circles. It also has horns. The torso has square shoulders, but the main part of the body is more loosely defined than in most Fremont work. The interior of the torso has several chevrons in the chest area. There are no legs nor arms. Both of the figures give just a bit of a Barrier Canyon impression. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP043: Found along the Court of Ceremonies Trail. This may or may not be an anthropomorph. It's hard to tell if the top part of the element represents horns or a poorly closed circle. If horns, then this could be a head with a very short torso. Or, it could be some sort of graphic element. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP045: Found along the Court of Ceremonies Trail. Three interesting anthropomorphs; two with horns, and one with a circular head containing concentric circles. They have somewhat of a Fremont appearance, but with some features that give them a different "flavor" than typical. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP047: Found along the Court of Ceremonies Trail. Known as the "Cyclops" because there is a bullet hole in the middle of the face area that has been removed in this photo. This is probably a Fremont style anthropomorph, with the trapezoidal torso and bucket head with horns. The torso has some interior lines. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP051: Found along the Hidden Secrets Trail. This anthropomorphic figure may represent a warrior standing behind a shield, with some sort of weapon in its right hand. It has spread legs, as if in a defensive stance.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP052: Found along the Hidden Secrets Trail. It's difficult to tell if this is an anthropomorph or a zoomorph, or something else entirely. The upright position might indicate a more human figure, but the large floppy "ears" and short "arms" give the impression of a jackrabbit. Or it could be just some sort of symbol. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP073: From the Arch of Art view point. A small anthropomorphic figure that appears to be of a Fremont style. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP074: From the Arch of Art view point. A small Fremont style anthropomorph with what might be a water symbol over its head. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP079: From the Arch of Art view point. An anthropomorph with a trapezoidal torso topped with a trapezoidal head. There appears to be a heart mark that looks contemporaneous with the original work. There are squiggly lines above the figure, with might represent water. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP081: From the Arch of Art view point. What looks like an anthropomorphic figure with a round torso and a long neck with a very small head and two legs ending in ball shaped feet. The figure appears to be holding a small shield. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.

FP089: From the Arch of Art view point. Four anthropomorphs; two of a Fremont style, with trapezoidal torso, short arms, square heads atop thick necks, with horns and earrings. There are spread fingers on the hands, but only one of the two figures appears to have short, bowed, lets. The other figure appears to be wearing a grass skirt. The other two figures, to the left, appear to be older due to their faded condition. They are of a somewhat different style that is not too different from the Fremont, but has somewhat of an Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) flavor to them. The upper of the two figures definitely has a more triangular shaped torso. The lower figure has bison-like horns. Petroglyph.

Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP096: From Rim Trail viewpoint. The panel is referred to as Newspaper Rock. See also photos FP091, FP092, FP093, FP094, FP095, FP096, FP097, FP098, FP099, and FP100. Two anthropomorphs of a somewhat unusual style. The larger of the two figures is outlined, with only a single vertical line dividing the torso from groin to neck. The figure has a Fremont style inverted bucket head, with two arcs coming from the head and making something like a halo. There are no arms, but the legs extend to the sides and are bent at the knees, with the feet angled back toward each other, creating something of a triangular effect. There is what at first looks like a penis, but perhaps this is a birthing scene, with the figure lying on its back, bending its legs to aid the birth process. The small impish figure above the larger figure may represent a helper, the the child to come. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP099: From Rim Trail viewpoint. The panel is referred to as Newspaper Rock. See also photos FP091, FP092, FP093, FP094, FP095, FP096, FP097, FP098, FP099, and FP100. I've seen similar figures to this in other locations. It looks to be a round head with horns sitting atop a stick figure with multiple smaller arms. It may represent a head on a stake, or a shamans staff, or perhaps some sort of plant. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP100: From Rim Trail viewpoint. The panel is referred to as Newspaper Rock. See also photos FP091, FP092, FP093, FP094, FP095, FP096, FP097, FP098, FP099, and FP100. This is another unusual figure that may or may not be an anthropomorph. It might have a two lobed head atop a stick figure, with a pair of arms with hands. But, again, it might represent a symbol of some sort. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP102: From Rim Trail viewpoint. From Panel 96. See also FP101. This Fremont style anthropomorph has all of the typical features, but is wearing what looks to be a skirt. This is a large figure, perhaps the largest in the Park. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP111: From the Canyon of Life. This shot was taken from some distance, so the details are difficult to see. At first it appears to be an anthropomorph, with long droopy ears and typical broad shoulders. But the torso is a semi-circle atop a single leg. This may represent some sort of staff or symbol. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP114: From the Canyon of Life. This is a typical Fremont style anthropomorph with arms, legs, and horns. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP118: From the Canyon of Life. Marao Panel. Another Fremont style anthropomorph, with no visible arms or legs. The trapezoidal torso is filled in and the figure has a bucket head. There is no feather nor horns. See also photos FP117 and FP119. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP121: From just west of Sheep Shelter, known as the Water Panels (the middle panel). This Fremont style anthropomorph has horns and short legs. The right arm and hand appear to be holding some sort of bag or basket, while the left arm and hand appear to be holding the long stem of some plant, or a spiked stick. See also FP121, FP120, FP122, FP123, and FP124. Petroglyph. See also FP165 for a different view of this figure.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP122: From just west of Sheep Shelter, known as the Water Panels (the middle panel). At first this figure appears to be the head of a pronghorn or mountain sheep, looking face on. It could also be the head from an anthropomorphic figure, with no torso. See also FP121, FP120, FP122, FP123, and FP124. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP126: From just west of Sheep Shelter, known as the Emergence Continuation Panel or Water Panels (the middle panel). These odd little figures are quite small and can be seen next to the graphic image in FP125. They may represent "helpers" of some sort. They are not distinct, but the figure to the left give the appearance of a rabbit. The middle figure looks to be some sort of anthropomorph, with a round ball shaped head, stick torso, and spread legs. The third figure, to the right, looks like a fat exclamation mark. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP129: From the Cave of a Hundred Hands. Many of the red hands and other markings covering the surface within the shallow cave. See also FP135. Pictograph.
FP135: From the Cave of a Hundred Hands. Pictograph. A close up of a few of the hands within the shallow cave. See also FP129. Pictograph.
FP136: From the Cave of a Hundred Hands. Pictograph. A close up of a single hand. See also FP135.
FP132: From the Cave of a Hundred Hands. Pictograph. At first this figure appears to be a long-legged frog. However, due to the trapezoidal torso and bucket shaped head it's my guess that this is an anthropomorph. It's possible that the legs were added at a later date because they do not appear to be the same color as the torso. On the other hand, if they are original, this might represent a birthing scene.
FP143: From Skinner Canyon's Drought Panel. Petroglyph. See FP141 to see the entire panel. This lobster like figure is probably an anthropomorph with short legs and raised arms.
FP144: From Skinner Canyon's Drought Panel. Petroglyph. See FP141 to see the entire panel. This anthropomorph appears to have lightning or long feathers coming from its head.

FP164: From the most western of the Water Panels. Petroglyph. An anthropomorph with a round face featuring eyes and a frowning mouth. There is also what looks to be a plant, possibly maze or a reed, and other small objects that are difficult to identify. See also FP157, FP158, FP159, FP160, FP161, FP162, and FP163.

FP165: From the middle of the three Water Panels. Petroglyph. A typical Fremont anthropomorph with a trapezoidal torso, thick legs, a bucket head with horns, and objects in its hands. The object in its left hand looks to be a plant, while the object in the right hand is said to be a Badger Clan symbol. See also FP155, FP156, FP166, FP167, FP168, FP169, FP170, and FP171. See also FP121 for a different view of this figure.

Calendars and Astronomical Events

Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP053: Found along the Hidden Secrets Trail. A series of concentric circles and crossing lines dividing the whole into sections. Some of the literature provided by the Park says that this is probably not a calendar because there are no natural features present that might cast shadows that would intersect with this object. However, the panel faces south, and if a person were to place a tall pole or straight stick in front of this object a shadow would be cast at certain times of the year, pointing to different portions of the figure on different dates and different times of the day. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP106: From Rim Trail viewpoint. This could represent the Sun or a star. Petroglyph.
FP146: From Skinner Canyon's Drought Panel. Petroglyph. See FP141 to see the entire panel. These sets of dots could be some sort of counting device or represent a wish for rain. Or something else entirely.
FP154: From the most eastern of the Water Panels. Petroglyph. Rows of dots and a couple of unidentifiable figures. Is this a counting device, or do the dots represent something else?

Geometric Shapes and Designs

FP016: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. A left-handed spiral. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP026: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. An interesting mark that has faded with time. It's difficult to tell if this is man-made or a natural feature. It reminds me, though, of a vulvaform image. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP029: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. An interesting graphic pattern. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.

FP059: Indian Blanket, from near the Sheep Shelter site. This pictograph, one of the few in the area, is high up on a cliff face across the freeway from the main part of the Park. It is facing north. We've also seen similar designs on pottery, usually associated with the Ancestral Puebloans (Anasazi). It is painted just to the left of FP060. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP060: Indian Blanket, from near the Sheep Shelter site. A small pictograph of what may be a blanket pattern. It is painted just to the right of FP059. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP064: From near the Sheep Shelter site. An interesting stick with four balls attached to one end. Perhaps a wand or a weapon. See also FP063. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP068: From the Arch of Art view point. This shot was taken with a zoom lens and so is difficult to describe. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP077: From the Arch of Art view point, Panel 19: Initiation. One interpretation says that this represents and initiation of young men into the badger clan. Note the anthropomorph below the main figure. See also FP077, FP075 and FP076. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP082: From the Arch of Art view point. This is not a good photo, but the figure in the lower right may represent an upright rabbit. But then again.... Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP083: From the Arch of Art view point. This looks to be a concentric circle or a spiral. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP085: From the Arch of Art view point. This pictograph is a bit faded and may represent a blanket pattern or water. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP087: From the Arch of Art view point. This is a very nice blanket pattered pictograph. It sits back beneath a bit of an overhang, so has been preserved better than similar figures in more exposed areas. This is a very nice blanket pattered pictograph. You can see it within the context of the rest of the panel in FP084 Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP104: From Rim Trail viewpoint. This could be a medicine bag or pouch. Petroglyph.

Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP119: From the Canyon of Life, a portion of the Marao Panel. The panel is thought by the Paiutes to represent the circle dance, which they perform to request rain. See also photos FP117 and FP118. Petroglyph.
FP131: From the Cave of a Hundred Hands. Pictograph. This could be a set of waves, representing water, or it could represent a snake. Due to the sharp points and no apparent head nor tail it's my guess that this represents water. The cave does sit on a ledge above Clear Creek.
FP133: From the Cave of a Hundred Hands. Pictograph. A series of waves, as in a blanket design. See also FP134 for a similar design.
FP134: From the Cave of a Hundred Hands. Pictograph. A series of waves, similar to those seen in blanket designs. See also FP133.

FP108: From the Canyon of Life. This is one of the more interesting figures within the Park. The Park information calls this The Beginning of Life Panel. The panel is thought to explain the meaning of the shape of this canyon as being the legend about life being conceived from the sun from the east and west. See also photo FP109. Petroglyph.
Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP109: From the Canyon of Life. A slightly different view of the figure in FP108. Petroglyph.

Zoomorphs

Fremont Indian State Park, Utah.
FP004: Found along the Parade of Rock Art Trail. When I first saw this figure I got the impression of a dragon, facing toward the left, reared up on its hind legs. But then on closer view I could clearly see that it is a mountain sheep facing right, leaning forward on its front legs, with perhaps a snake passing along its raised rump. You can also see what may be unusual anthropomorphic figure above the sheep, with a triangular torso reversed from the usual, with the broad end being down near the legs, and the narrow end up near the head, which appears to have a single feather protruding from it. Also, below the front legs of the zoomorph there may be the outlines of an anthropomorphic head, wearing a necklace, and a single dot that may be a heart mark. Petroglyph.

FP046: Found along the Court of Ceremonies Trail. This figure is by itself on a large rock face. Because of its unusual nature, locals thought there was native treasure or Spanish gold buried at this location. There have been several excavations of the ground below this figure. Some believe it to be a symbol, but I believe I've seen similar figures and have always interpreted them to represent millipedes or earwigs. Petroglyph.
