Joseph Campbell, the famed student of mythology and religion, once called Canyon de Chelly "the most sacred place on Earth." Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist, who had a few ideas about the sacred himself, concurred. He added that Canyon de Chelly, a complex of wide chasms in northeastern Arizona and populated by the Navaho Nation, was the only place he knew outside of the Valley of the Nile that so truly embodied the very essence of antiquity. The Navaho Nation is a culture built around its religious ideas and symbols but it’s hard to visualize
any philosophy or value system lasting over four centuries. So, in addition to its historical
significance, the place is absolutely beautiful and a lot of fun to paint.
