From the towering cliffs of the Columbia River Gorge to the canyon walls and caves of the American Southwest, the history of Native Americans is literally written in stone. Thousand-year-old pictographs (paintings) and petroglyphs (carvings) are a virtual library of ancient tales, recording the stories of western tribes for all time. These primitive yet detailed drawings were the inspiration for our Painted Rock pattern, which includes tribal images found throughout the West. Sun wheels and shamen were discovered in California and supernova and stars in New Mexico. Rainbows and hunters represent the Snake River Canyon and buffalo the Plains Indians of Montana. Corn and moon symbols tell us of the Hopi of Arizona. Bear tracks, salmon and the sun were powerful images of Northwest tribes. Our Painted Rock pattern is a visual tribute to the rich artistry and lore of the many tribes of the western United States.
