In ancient times, the only means man had to record his thoughts was to scratch pictures onto rock. The soft lava found here made an excellent tablet for such drawings. One of the petroglyphs show several figures grouped together and are thought to depict a family. The human figures with large bodies are probably the Ali'i (royalty) and the stick figures may be the commoners. Many different animals, canoes and tools are also depicted.
