This study presents a motif classification, quantification, and regional comparisons for engraved rock art from the Maderas Volcano on Ometepe Island, Nicaragua.

Aformal analysis was conducted, which included construction of a typology for, then quantitative analysis of motifs found on over 700 boulders—only a portion of that known to exist on the island.
