This pictograph is a most unusual geometric design which is not similar to others found in Arkansas. The abstract nature of the design makes its interpretation very difficult. It is possible that it is an unusual and highly stylized sun symbol. Careful study of geometric rock art designs from other regions of the country could shed some light upon its significance. Further research should also consider its possible astronomical significance.
