Un Fragil Testimonio
El arte rupestre de Arroyo Seco es el testimonio de la forma de concebir el mundo y relacionarse con el territorio por parte de las antiguas sociedades de cazadores recolectores, como también del dramático proceso de colonización y poblamiento del nororiente de Guanajuato.

Algunos sitios de manifestaciones rupestres del valle intermontano de Victoria han resistido con mayor o menor éxito el paso del tiempo, mientras otros han terminado por desaparecer. Cada motivo pintado es único, su pérdida conlleva a la desaparición de la memoria histórica colectiva por lo que proteger y conservar el patrimonio rupestre es responsabilidad de todos.
