Boulder 48 Information
Boulder 48 is the central and largest boulder at Tutuveni. It forms a large rectangle, roughly 4 meters on one side and 3.5 meters tall. All four vertical panels and the horizontal top panel are completely covered with petroglyphs. Sixty percent (2,537) of all the symbols at Tutuveni are found on Boulder 48. It is the most heavily repatinated boulder and as such, is almost certainly the oldest. Its prominence of place at Tutuveni made it the most desirable canvas for clan signatures by the first generations of Hopi men to complete the Wuwtsim pilgrimage.
