These images were made by pecking flakes from the surface of the rock to expose the lighter colored rock underneath. An early method of pecking used a hand stone to strike the rock, resulting in a rudimentary figure. Later, a more controlled execution used two stones that worked like a hammer and chisel. This method gave them the ability to peck images that are more detailed.
