This lithograph was made from a rubbing that Branson Stevenson did of petroglyphs CM Russell carved into the concrete of the patio at Con Kelley's summer home on Swan Lake, in the 1920s.
Two rubbings were made: the Axolotl, and the Snail Shell were printed by Branson Stevenson in 1966. The production of the lithos was sponsored by MHS.
Stevenson was an artist and oil executive born in Georgia, he moved to Great Falls, Montana in 1932. Mostly worked in etchings and lithos, one the founders of Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana.
