Three artists from Bluff, Utah: Joe Pachak, JR Lancaster, and Rainy Pachak, with the help of many friends from Bluff and surrounding communities, created a full-size mammoth made of local materials. They built this in order to not only commemorate a 12,000 plus year old petroglyph discovered by Joe Pachak himself, but to also commemorate the people then and now with a conveyance of community and sustainability. On December 21, 2012 shortly after 8 p.m., flaming atlatl darts were shot at the wooden mammoth. Around two hundred people from Bluff and other communities joined in celebrating the burning of this amazing piece of art representing deep history, community, and sustainability...then and now.
