GJ museum official heads to Mexico for rock art study
A Museum of Western Colorado official will spend a week studying rock art in Mexico and discussing the examples of rock art found in the southwest United States.
Zebulon Miracle, curator of anthropology for the museum, was invited by the Coahuila Desert Museum to discuss, for the first time there, the rock art found north of the border in places such as Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon and Canyon de Chelle.
While in Coahuila, Miracle said he plans to examine the rock art of that region and see how much it resembles rock art found in the United States.
“We’re really hoping this is the first of many trips” between the countries to share information, Miracle said.
The bulk of the cost of the trip is being paid by the Mexican government, with the Museum of Western Colorado paying Miracle’s airfare.
