TALKING STONE
ROCK ART OF THE COSOS
DOCUMENTARY FILM
Hidden away in the canyons of a top secret military base on the edge of the Mojave Desert is the largest concentration of rock art in North America. Created over thousands of years by a now vanished culture, it represents the oldest art in California. TALKING STONE explores the remote canyons and mysteries surrounding these amazing images.
The new documentary film from Paul Goldsmith and Dr. Alan P. Garfinkel, available from the Bradshaw Foundation iShop on DVD, Download and HD Download.
