Wave or a Crawl?

(More Hints at Identifying Indigenous Stonework)

      I guess it’s more of a crawl than a wave maybe – or is every long segment of rows of stones a Great Serpent, connecting the underworld to the upperworld, “suggestive of flowing water or the zig-zag of lightning,” like the Tewa say? {http://wakinguponturtleisland.blogspot.com/2014/02/great-serpents-and-sometimes-serpentine.html}

Look more carefully and closer to see if any of those stones artistically placed as if to more closely resemble animal heads important to the local Indigenous People?
