Look at Von Petzinger (spelling?) on Youtube, she is an anthropologist/archaeologist(??) that deals with symbols for cave paintings.  She has Ted talk video and National Geographic video.

Dear Francisco,
Thank you for your reply! I have read the book, thesis, papers, and TED Talks of Dr. von Petzinger and you are right that there are several strong suggestions from her findings that they are similar to them.

I am of the opinion that if one works with such symbols long enough, and with different approaches, something may eventually click and pieces may fall into place.  That does not mean that they will _for_ you (or for anyone else in particular doing such a pursuit).  It may be your task to start it, someone else's to finish it.  Where are the pictoglyphs that you are looking at from (in general)?
