Guardians of the Waters
The desert lands of the southwestern United States contain a multitude of mysteries and artifacts of earlier peoples. The images carved into the rock face in “Guardians of the Waters” did, at one time, have a specific meaning, but experts today do not agree on their precise translation. McCarthy’s dynamic portrait of a band of warriors racing past a group of symbols illustrates the grand scale and intriguing style of some of these petroglyphs. Perhaps these warriors know their true meaning.
