Close up of red linear under head and rabbit
This close up of the head region of the halo shaman clearly defines that the red linear style line is painted under the head of the pecos river style halo shaman indicating that it was painted either prior to or at the same time by the same artist that painted the halo shaman. Note the rabbit (in the red linear style) in close approximation to the right hand of the anthropomorph and the red linear circle. These are integral figures part of the same portrayal and would again indicate they were painted by the same ancient artist 2500 year BC thus dating the red linear to that earlier time period than previous thought by archeologists. This identity has been made possible by new technology that allows us to see with other color spaces what the camera and human eye can not see.
