Vandalized Petroglyphs May Never Be Restored

RED ROCK CANYON, Nev. -- The vandalism that may have destroyed ancient artwork carved into the stones at Red Rock Canyon could cost thousands of dollars to repair, if experts can even do it.

The rock is in a remote area that was challenging hike to near Willow Springs and the Red Rock Loop Road. Experts say the pictographs that remained on the canyon walls for 1,000 years were destroyed in seconds by spray paint.

"It's not simply a question of using some kind of solvent and washing it off. It's like treating the Sistine Chapel. You might be able to remove the damage, the spray paint, but you still want to retain the pictographs underneath," said BLM archeologist Mark Boatwright.
