  All these methods have fallen out of favor due to inaccuracies, probable damage caused to the original rock art and/or lichen growths in the area. I would also argue that only the rubber castings truly showed all the detail of the petroglyphs. Some of these processes also required that any lichen growths be completely cleaned from the rock surface.4/4(1). Archaeology has traditionally used three methods to document rock art graphically: freehand drawing, rock rubbing and photography (Stanbury and Clegg, ).The documentation of cultural heritage employing digital techniques aimed at obtaining 3D models of high photo-realistic quality is now considered a necessary and vital practise in order to provide a complete monitoring, protection and Cited by: The Coso Petroglyph Chronology David S. Whitley and Ronald I.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PETROGLYPHS ©Maturango Museum 3 September Rock Art What is the difference between a petroglyph and a pictograph? A petroglyph is made by cutting into the rock surface (“glyph” means “carving”). A pictograph is painted with a paint or dry Size: KB.

The purpose of establishing a recording system was to inform persons planning to purchase or otherwise deal with land about the ownership and condition of the title.

However, petroglyphs can sometimes be attributed to a specific group of people who inhabited or passed through the area where the petroglyphs occur.

Petroglyphs and Pictographs. Objective: Compare and contrast the subject matter of pictographs and petroglyphs. Background: Petroglyphs and pictographs represent two distinctive methods for producing rock art. Petroglyphs are carved or pecked into an exposed rock surface, while pictographs are painted onto those surfaces. A very nice little side-trail off of the Reef Bay Trail which leads to the Petroglyph Falls and Petroglyphs. During the dry season the falls reduce to a small trickle. The rock carvings by the pools are attributed to early Arawak Indians. The trail to the Petroglyphs is bordered on one side with a rock wall, and on the other with a plant known. The respondents shared their knowledge and perception about the conservation of Angono-Binangonan Petroglyphs. The researchers constructed terms through data collection. A total of three (3) themes created by the researchers supported to the researches paradigm. The current status of Angono-Binangonan Petroglyphs is just the same. The visuals and descriptions allow the reader to take the book and go observe these conclusions firsthand at a local petroglyph site to further their own knowledge. My hope is that this book helps many further their research in all kinds of areas of interest as I have always provided individual help to /5(25).
