Description 36x36 Oil Painting on CanvasThe Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness, located in the U.S. state of New Mexico, is a desolate area of steeply eroded badlands. Bisti means 'a large area of adobe formations' and De-Na-Zin mean 'Standing Crane' in Navajo words. This high desert wilderness features a vast landscape containing some of the most unique rock mushrooms formations on this planet. The Bisti was once a coastal swamp of an inland sea 70 million years ago; and was home to many large trees, reptiles, dinosaurs, and primitive mammals. What people see today is the preserved record of this pre-historic swamp that is now a true desert wilderness.
