The carvings appear along a horizontal band almost 4 meters long by 2 meters wide, arranged on volcanic rocks that form a cliff approximately 10 meters high, the INAH said in a statement.
The iconography of the petroglyphs is linked to the pictorial tradition of the Aztatlan culture, which from about 850-900 through 1350 A.D. inhabited mainly the low coastal lands in northern Nayarit and southern Sinaloa state, INAH archaeologist Mauricio Garduno said.
