Petroglyphs in Santa Fe, Panama

Petroglyphs are  pictorial images created by removing part of a rock surface by picking, carving or engraving.  Petroglyphs are found world-wide and in Panama you can see them in almost every area of the country.  Some of them date back to as far as the 15th century!  Talk about leaving your mark!

The gallery below shows a petroglyph in Santa Fe, Panama that was discovered during some recent road construction.  It sits right on the side of the new road.  My guide Cele and I would have driven right past it had it not been for the orange fencing around it.
