Artist's Description

Two of the most striking features of the Mojave Desert in the American Southwest are the pillowy shaped rock formations and the strange looking plants that surround them. Heat and pressure over thousands of years transformed sedimentary rock into an entirely new kind of rock called gneiss.

The strange looking Joshua Tree, Yucca Brevifolia, is a member of the Agave family that typically grows in the Mojave Desert. Legend has it that Mormon pioneers named the tree after the biblical figure Joshua, seeing the limbs of the tree as outstretched arms. This Joshua Tree was photographed at the Split Rock area in Joshua Tree National Park, California.
