Annotation:

and often very surprising, revealing unexpected facets of the world view of ancient
man. However, as the famous anthropologist and archaeologist V. N. Chernetsov, if

and meaning of petroglyphs". The present paper discusses some of the most famous
"Amur" and a few Siberian petroglyphs, when reading the graphemes which are used in
the so-called "method of sacred symbols", allowing to understand and interpret the religious
and mythological content embedded in the image of the petroglyph.
