Native artists of the Historic Period painted scenes of everyday life on cliff walls and in rock shelters. In this scene from Paint Rock in Concho County, a hunter stalks a buffalo with a bow and arrow. Other paintings in the same panel show a mission with crosses atop two turrets (for more details, see the Paint Rock exhibit in the Historic Encounters map layer). Water color rendering of the shelter art by Forrest Kirkland, circa 1930. TARL collections.
