I have seen engravings like this on various rocks in the Southern region - near Abha and a big one near Taif.

The southern ones seem much older and some had pictograms on them - just at the side of the road.

I was photographing the construction of the mountain road by the Koreans at the time - big project and the first proper highway down to the sea - I did drive the old one a couple of times, very scary!
