Winter Solstice in Ancient Texas

This pictograph in Texas was painted between 1300 and 1700 CE at a site called Paint Rock in Texas:
A sun dagger intersects the focal point of this red glyph at solar noon on the winter solstice. Earlier on winter solstice day, the dagger forms at the lower left of the panel and proceeds proceeds across and upwards until reaching the center at noon, at an ancient solar interaction site on the Campbell ranch in northern Concho County.
