Hawaiian petroglyphs exposed by strong sea swells

Petro4

Over 70 ancient petroglyphs have been exposed by monster surf on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.

The unusually strong seasonal surf has washed away layers of sand all along Pupukea Beach, just east of the big-surf mecca of Waimea, to reveal dozens of large glyphs carved into the bench of lava rock.

More than 70 carvings have been exposed, mostly depicting human-like figures and dogs, according to the Historic Hawaii Foundation, whose workers are documenting the images.
