The images above have a common theme, geometry. Number 1 has the image of a ram shown with a grid pattern of circles. One can be certain that the geometry of the pattern was important and anything but random.
Numbers 2 and 3 are circles bisected by light and shadow. This is noteworthy as it demonstrated they knew the function of division.
Numbers 4 and 5 demonstrate the idea further. This time, the circle (or sunsymbol in case 5) is quartered by a right angle of light. This is the circle bisected twice, again a function of division.
Number 6 is a device that probably noted the position of the sun at zenith. I say probably because there is no way we will ever know. It was broken by natural events during a particulary cold winter a few years ago. The diamond theme is a specific geometric pattern.

Patterns, as shown in pictures 7 through 12, demonstrate the logic of geometry as applied by pre-modern math. Grids were used to demonstrate the concept of ratios. The math was may have been base 5 as opposed to the modern base 10. Fractions were displayed as ratios. Each ratio and the way it is depicted may represent specific solar or lunar functions.
There are a lot of "maybe's", "perhaps" and "may have been's" in this explanation. Althougn Inyo is a source of data, it is by no means completely demonstrative. It may be, but it will take much time to prove the case diligently.
