Paleo-Indian Art of Marin - "A Face From Every Angle"

California Paleo-Indian Tribal Art Collected in Marin County

In 1976, Anthropologists from UC Berkeley analyzed the Rock Art and Petroglyphs located on Marin County’s, Ring Mountain in Corte Madera California.

They concluded that the first inhabitants of California, the Paleo-Indians, occupied this area 8,000-12,000 years ago. They created the term Pecked Curvilinear Nucleated (PCN) Tradition to describe how the Paleo-Indians used small stones to peck away at larger rocks in order to make designs and pictures.

I began collecting California Paleo-Indian Tribal Art in the year 2,000 when I realized that they used their PCN skills to decorate their stone tools and to make wooden objects depicting many of the strange creatures that lived in the area.

Two years ago, I discovered that these technologically advanced, but primitive people, had the capability to work with glass and metal.   What began as a hobby has grown into the largest collection of its kind.
