Máazo'étsoh aka Big Marble
Fremont Rock Art Panels composed of pictographs (which are painted onto the rock) and petroglyphs (which are pecked into the rock) share these trapezoidal features. Many Fremont Rock Art Panels are found throughout the San Rafael Swell region of South Eastern Utah.

The Art of Tufa
CastingTufa is porous rock made of volcanic ash used to
form a casting mold. The Tufa Stone is cut to the desired size and shape which
often resembles a brick. It is then sliced in half. Usually, a design is carved
into just one of the interior sides of the Tufa Stone. After the carving is
done, the two halves of the Tufa Stones are rightly joined. This is tied
together with a strip of rubber. A "sprue hole" is carved into one end. The
joined and decorated halves then become the mold. Finally, molten sterling
silver is poured through the "sprue hole" into the mold. After the sterling
silver cools and hardens, the carved design is visible and the Tufa leaves a
textured surface on the metal. Jewelry such as a bracelet is cast flat and then
hammered into shape.
