More than 40 years ago interpretations of the prehistoric pictographs at Hueco Tanks State Historic Site, Texas, suggested: direct contact between Mesoamerican and Southwestern cultures; depictions of prominent Mexican deities; and imagery thought to represent katsina masks. These remain controversial. Recent research questions these assumptions. Elements, icons, and motifs at Hueco Tanks indicate participation in widespread and ethnically distinct ideologies rather than long distance diffusion. These images include Venus, twinned fish elements, and other representations associated with duality.
