The archeology of Horseshoe Canyon spans thousands of years of human history. Artifacts recovered from sites in this area date back as early as 9000-7000 BCE (Before Common Era), when Paleoindians hunted large mammals like mastodons and mammoths across the southwest.
American Indian rock art found in Horseshoe Canyon is most commonly painted in a style known as “Barrier Canyon.” This style is believed to date to the Late Archaic period, from 2000 BCE to 500 CE (Common Era). During this time, nomadic groups of hunter-gatherers made Horseshoe Canyon their seasonal home.
During later periods, the Fremont and ancestral Puebloan cultures left their own distinctive rock art in the canyon, but their presence was brief in comparison, and final abandonment occurred by 1300 CE.
The Great Gallery is the best known and most spectacular of the Horseshoe Canyon panels. This well preserved site includes both pictographs (painted figures) and petroglyphs (figures etched in the rock with a sharp stone). The tapered, life-size figures lack arms and legs, but frequently contain intricate designs. These designs are characteristic of the Barrier Canyon style.

Patina Finish Disclaimer:
Please note, the patina finish on all of our rustic metal decor is hand crafted. The metal surface is presented to you in the exact way as it was received from the mill, which may include some dings, and scratches. This distress look is left to add that rustic charm to each piece of metal decor. The patina process takes place outdoors, which makes the coloring process susceptible to weather changes that can create variations in color and texture. Not only is each piece made to order, each piece is also unique to you.
