. The Largest Cave Drawings in North America Have Been Found in Alabama « JO LEE MAGAZINE

ART NEWS – The five large figures discovered include three anthropomorphs (human-like figures), one swirling, enigmatic figure, and a snake, most likely an eastern diamondback rattlesnake which was sacred to Southeast Indigenous people of the time. The smallest figure measures about 3 feet and the largest, the snake, stretches to about 10 feet in length, marking the largest known known cave drawings in North America. The drawing were not made with pigment but rather incised into the walls. It is unknown what the figures represented to the Native Americans who made them in the Middle Woodland period of some 2,000 years ago.
