More Cueva Lucero Pictographs

Here are a couple pictographs - don't know what the drawing on the right is.

This snake has some graffiti under it. It was large and in a side room.

Buried beneath a lot of graffiti are a couple drawings.

This wall shows a few drawings - a person? upper, bird and on the right it looks like a seal to me and at one point there were seals in the waters around Puerto Rico.

One of my favorites - "creepy man."

I have no idea what this could be.

Another face.

I have no idea what this could be or if it is anything. It was very faint so I added some contrast to try to bring out the design.

This is a broader view of an earlier image that shows the third, far right drawing.

I'm not sure if all of these are "real" or not. I googled "Taino Petroglyphs and Pictrographs" and saw some of these designs but not all of them. It looks like there are a lot of caves and Taino art in Dominican Republic! A lot of petroglyphs appear to be scattered around our island also, in stream beds, caves and other places that would be hard to locate unless you know someone who has been there! Interesting stuff for us!

The one looks a lot like an African mask...could have been by native indians but aso escaped slaves hiding out in the caves for safety.
