Just north of Alton Illinois are a series of limestone cliffs and bluff that extend for 40-50 miles north along the riverside. They average about 100-150' in height. These caves are at the location of the famous Piasa Bird Cliff Drawing

This is a great shot of the Piasa Bird...don't you think you might see a bit of Chinese influence?

definitely some oriental influence - I wonder how mid-west American Indians got Asian influence in their art in the 1500's??

When was this painted?? is it old? Great capture.

I wish we had that many children in church each Sunday...........we are lucky to have one. Sad, sad

yes - almost exactly.

it's strange because the Piasa faces south and it was a sunny day - so those crevices must be fairly deep

it's really is junne - all the things we take for granted, and I bet you could taken 10,000 random Americans and they would have a tough time figuring out how to do this with 15th or 16th century technology
