Cholla Site Fact Sheet

This glyph probably depicts either two joined human figures or a human figure joined with a hand. A shadow cuts across the middle of the glyph just before sunset at the summer solstice. The setting Sun shines through the crack in the boulder to the right of the glyph, creating a "dagger" of sunlight on the back on the small rock shelter.
