Halo Shelter, Dead Man's Canyon

Site: 41VV1230

Halo Shelter (also known as Dead Man’s Canyon or Clary Shelter) was so named for the number of figures whose hair literally stands on end, separated from the skull be a gap that creates a halo effect. This small shelter is on a steep tributary to the Devils River, in an area where the bedrock is not conducive to the formation of caves or large overhangs. A wide variety of themes are represented, including flight metaphors, feline transformations, and grotesques.
