On one of the rock platforms along the Little Moab Track is a school of (four) whales and a deity figure… the engravings are very faint and weathered and hard to make out.

Depicting a pod of whales swimming in the ocean, this rock engraving site was thought to be of mythological or ritual importance (McCarthy, 1983). The site was described as a “very old group in which parts of the whales have weathered away”, and it’s very hard to make out any of the figures.

There is a shield inside one of the four whales, a man and four ovals or mundoes.
