The Ward Petroglyph site in Ellsworth County has many petroglyphs present on six separate panels of Dakota sandstone. Those shown here include four anthropomorphic figures: one with a circular head and triangular body, one with a triangular head and bottle shaped body, one with possible tepees in the background and one leading a quadruped. These views were shot in 1979 and 1980.

Date: 1979-1980
