Shifting sands and a beam of light came together in perfect harmony to reveal ancient petroglyphs to a tourist couple from Ft. Worth Texas on the Waianae coast of Oahu, Hawaii. The petroglyphs are believed to be more than 400 years old.
The Texas couple found at least ten figures in the sand stretching over nearly 60 percent of the Waianae beach.
The Department of Land & Natural Resources (DLNR) State Historic Preservation Division of Hawaii says that this is the first they’ve learned of the petroglyphs. Together with the U.S. Army, they’re working on recording and documenting the findings. A total of 17 petroglyphs were identified in the sand and one of the petroglyphs measured roughly five feet from head to toe.
Petros is the Greek word for stone, glyph the Greek word for carved image. Petroglyphs are rock carvings (rock paintings are called pictographs) made by carving directly on the rock surface using a stone chisel and a hammerstone.
