Waving Hands Review


In Northwest Colorado near Rangely is the Waving Hands pictograph site (see page 5 of the linked document). Believed to be of Fremont origin, the site is named for a life-size pair of disembodied hands painted on a sheer sandstone rock face. The hands are mysterious. Are they welcoming or a warning? Drowning or emerging? Celebrating a victory or pleading for deliverance?  No one knows for sure. But the waving hands are arresting and thought-provoking, and remain a distinctly human statement in a remote wilderness.
