Genuine Tehuelche "inscribed or engraved" stones

What real Tehuelche native engraved stones look like

When looking at the "inscribed" stones of Patagonia, you should compare them with the "engraved stones" (in Spanish "placas grabadas") that are of an unquestionable native American orign (Tehuelche or Mapuche).

The image shown above depicts an example of a real Tehuelche "engraved stone". As you can see, they are flat surfaced stones that have been etched, by scraping with some sharp element. The drawings are crude and lack the artistic style of the allegedly "Middle Eastern inscribed stones" of supposed Phoenician origin.
