Primitive petroglyph, Hope Street
The precise significance of this image, discovered on a No Motor Vehicles sign, is unknown. Some authorities believe it portrays a demon receiving the heart of a sacrificial victim; others, pointing to its location on Hope Street, believe it indicates the hope that the spirit will ascend to a higher life. One archaeologist has even suggested it may be a design for a bottle opener.
