Bones in the Sand

The Rancho Guadalupe Dunes are notable as the backdrop for Cecil B. DeMille’s 1923 production of The Ten Commandments, for which the legendary director built massive sets and brought a cast of literally thousands to this sea of sand. Once filming finished, DeMille buried the sets in the dunes.

  1. Beautiful! Nice to see that I am not the only one obsessed with bones. Georgia O’Keefe was an early childhood inspiration. There is such an intricate beauty to them and the way they lay in the sand. You are waiting for them to start assembling themselves. Absolutely love it!
