Piece description from the artist
A gorgeous southwestern sunset sky mimics the the late afternoon light that illuminates the sandstone rock formations of this Utah desert scene. The ancient Anasazi fire pit is but a remnant of a mysterious native culture that disappeared over 700 years ago. All that remains is this well preserved ceremonial gathering place hidden high atop the canyons in this secret cliffside location.
