Utah artist, Joe Venus, has captured and created on canvas, a segment of time when the prehistoric Fremont Indian Culture disappeared from Nine Mile Canyon near Price, Utah.
A severe drought which began in 1276 and lasted to 1299 A.D. caused this large group of prehistoric people to disappear and leave behind the great profusion of rock art on the walls of Nine Mile Canyon.
The painting 1300 A.D. by artist Joe Venus depicts a time when only a few Desert Sheep and scarce wildlife survived after the devastating drought.
Today the petroglyphs, pictographs and artifacts are the only historical records which remain as witness of that primitive culture.
