Flute Player on a Rock Wall (07-015-099-A)Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This 3D model was made by our Summer Youth Interns. The featured panel sits atop a significant yet subtle rock wall feature. First, the panel itself contains several figurative images believed to be from the Classic Pueblo Period. These include a male flute player next to a female human figure on one side, and a 2-horned serpent to the right. Rotate the model and you’ll see the boulder itself sits near the middle of a parabolic retaining wall built of basalt cobbles. Despite being up to 2 meters high on one side (3 meters including the flute player boulder), the rock wall is easily overlooked, and almost blends into the slopes of a narrowing drainage. While the construction is somewhat unusual, it is located at the low end of an extensive field of agricultural features. The human couple and their companion horned serpent sit atop a functional retaining wall for water and sediment, facing back up the drainage to the fields in which they once helped foster crops.
