This is a digital illustration of the Chumash Painted Cave above Santa Barbara,  California. The images on the cave walls should not be viewed as simple art or graffiti as they were probably made by Chumash spiritual leaders, shamans or priests to influence supernatural beings and forces to intervene in human affairs.  No one knows for sure what the symbols mean, but they may represent mythic figures, natural phenomena, or abstract ideas. Tests of tiny pigment samples from the solid black disk provide support to a theory that the image may represent a solar eclipse that took place on November 24, 1677.  Colors making up the images come mostly from minerals: red from iron oxide called hematite; white from gypsum or diatomaceous earth, and black from plant juices. I created the shadow of a Chumash spirit on the cave wall to express my feeling as I observed and photographed the cave.
