Can you help?

I drew these little guys from a rock art illustration in an art history book a few years ago, and now I can’t figure out where they came from.  I think they’re pictographs, not petroglyphs, and I thought they were from Central Europe, but they’re not in any of my books.  I’ve done a dozen Google image searches without any luck.   Any ideas?

    I would have to agree with the South America suggestions. Maybe Bolivia, Peru?

    Possibly Eastern European – Llammas might even be reindeer? Gives the impression of a windy climate possible autumnal.

    Do let us know the answer won’t you?

    I agree with Joan…was thinking South American because of the llama looking figure and the plant life but some of the hats say oriental or even Turkish to me. Good Luck

    Wouldn’t it be great if there was a Google search like “image,” only you could scan in a pic of what you’re looking for and have Google match it? I have such good ideas.
