The pre-Columbian ruins in the Hovenweep National Monument are built around the head of shallow canyons, all except this one small house. It is on the canyon floor. Thousands of years ago a slab of rock fell from the canyon wall. Over time it became rounded on the top and hollowed out on the inside. The tribes began to settle into villages around 800 AD and someone decided this boulder would make a good dwelling. They enclosed the open side of the cavity with cut stones. Some of the stones have fallen but you can still see the bottom part of a window/door opening. All windows were also doors. Very clever. They did not have to climb the cliffs carrying the daily supply of water.

*The art has been professionally framed using museum grade mats, backing, mounting and UV protection glass.
