    Maze stone Petroglyph - Hemet, California

    I made a detour on my way out to Palm Springs last week to visit this site. There's a lot of mystery that surrounds these Maze petroglyph's as they are unique to the area and there are no theories as to who made them. There are at least 50 documented sites with Maze's like this one, all within 150 miles of each other, from Palm Springs, Hemet, and down into San Diego county. All are unique to this area and found no where else in the world.

    The sad part is the fences, not 1 but 2 of them even! If you look to the left lower corner of the Maze, you can see some dim whit carved in a swastika. I looked into that and found it was not part of the original Maze as they have a pic from the turn of the century and it's not in the pic. This is maybe the reason for the fences

    To be truthful they don't look very old. Protecting N/A artwork is important!

    Very cool petroglyph, who ever carved the "swastika" carved it rotating backwards.

    The "swastika" may have been put there by the original artist. Just look at the inner lines of the maze. It's a design that was around long before the Nazis.

    Very true.. But there is a picture of the Maze from about 1920 and it does not have the swastika in it, thus we can tell from that it was added after 1920.

    Based on assembleges found in and around a large nearbye village, archies estimate the age of the Maze is between 500 to 3,000 yrs old.

    tommy here are some from san diego , the second pic as you can see, defaced by gang sings, others have been gone over with pencil for some reason, what ever the reason its not right, these mazes are ancient and should not be defaced, the maze you posted could of been made by the same person, very interesting

    Thanks for posting that Vince. They are strikingly similiar!!!
    They say these come from the "Maze Culture"...Whoever made them, if I was a betting man I'd place everything I had that these were made from the same people

    I think I know where the one is you posted, looks like these 2 sites are less than 40 miles apart.
