Viewing rock art is a complex experience, just as is viewing any ohter art form. This experience may include knowledge of the site location, its time of creation, co-occurence with other rock art, stylistic correspondences (Kirsch 1996), and many other aspects not directly available to the unaided viewer. Scholarly and scientific studies thus add to the appreciation of a complex art form. Int this paper we contribute a new tool for the study of petroglyphs - computer recontruction.
