The design is reminiscent of the salt pan floor of Deadvlei in Namibia – a dry, cracked landscape of haunting beauty. Originally a thriving natural area, it was formed naturally when the Tsauchar River flooded centuries ago, and the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow.

The area was affected approximately 900 years ago by climate change, which led to dunes encroaching on the pan, blocking the river from reaching the land, and resulting in the current landscape.
