I have also called this painting "Fluted Columns in the Grand Canyon" for viewers unfamiliar with the Tapeats sandstone layer. John Wesley Powell in his explorations of the canyon referred to such fluting as rock "fretted with strange devices". Pebbles in small eddies eat down through layers of rock along the sides of the Colorado River. The resulting polished runnels and columns remind me of the Hindu temples I saw in India.
