Answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #650
Neither Petroglyph nor Bioglyph seems to satisfy the definition of art work using stones to outline a figure. A "mosaic" of sorts may be a better description of what is be found on a Bi-metallic coin. What may be seen is the design of a hummingbird or colibri. This actual, real-life artwork may be seen as a very large image (over 100 meters long) on the desert of which country?
