  • ROCK SCULPTURES - Aruba
 

While driving through the northern coast of Aruba, we came across an area filled with literally thousands of ROCK SCULPTURES, Throughout the years folks have created some pretty impressive rock art by piling one rock on top of the other and so on and some even adding some branches or other item they have found in the area. It's probably based on an Indian custom, to mark your way. I even "created" a little rock sculpture just to say I did. Actually it was pretty pathetic compared to most. On one rock formation. a little salamander peeked out from the rock as if to say "Hello".

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars

    I like the geology of these rocks. What part of the island are they located in?

      I see this rewiew is from 2006. It is possible they were knocked over by the elements.

      Maybe some were, but I can't imagine all were knocked over as there was tons of them and they're heavy and quite solid.
