The artists never signed their names, and for centuries their sandstone gallery remained hidden from all but their tribal descendants who wandered these windy sagebrush steppes. That obscurity is about to end, as one of the nation's richest oilmen, who also is a major contributor to the Republican Party, has been given permission to search for what he believes could be a pool of 10 million barrels of oil buried here.
