Altar of Sacrifice

Altar of Sacrifice by Lewis Williams, OFS

Artwork Narrative:

Zion National Park is loaded with incredibly carved rock towers of all sizes and shapes. What makes the Altar of Sacrifice different and the source of its unique name, is the dark red coloring ‘spilling’ from the top of this yellow tower down its east face. Hematite (iron oxide) in the stone is the source.

It reminds me, in a very large format, of what the Aztec culture in Mexico did to ensure the sun returned each day.
