ELABORATION

A number of the rock art sites in Arkansas display animals which are apparently not the subject of hunting rituals or activities (e.g., 3PP41, 3J072). These as well as the beaver pictograph at 3CN125 could represent animal totems. Prehistoric rock art animal figures are often drawn to emphasize their outstanding features. For example, such features as tails are usually exaggerated. This appears to have been done at 3CN125.
