Petrogylph Figures

These petroglyphs or pictographs have leapt off their stone walls to become beads. They are all made of soft glass. The goddesses (no legs), the shamans (legs and more) and the masks all have horizontal holes only. They range in size from 1" high to 3" (the goddess).

Petrogylph Animals

Sheep, bears, turtles, have horizontal or vertical holes. All petroglyph animals are with 2 legs in profile. Photo below right

. The animals generally are very similar from bead to bead, but the figures are distinctly one of kind. Please ask for a jpg photo to be emailed to you if you would like to know what I have in stock.
