395 Kodachrome by National Geographic Photographer Richard H. Stewart Sculptors in Gravel Made a Design Which Only Gods or Birds Could Grasp Windrows of scraped gravel composed a figure too large and indistinct for the builders to visualize except in the mind's eye. Hills gave the Indians no view; a helicopter made this photograph possible. The author believes the Indians made the sculpture between the 16th and mid-19th centuries, portraying a female monster or her hero-slayer. Air Force men here stake out hands and feet, while the author stands on the head.
