- Legends Of The National Parks: Death Valley's Giant Mummy
Death Valley National Park is home to many spooky stories and unsolved mysteries, but perhaps the most mysterious of all is the story of the Archaic Indians who once lived in the region. Most notably, this group of Indigenous Americans was said to be a clan of giants, Indigenous peoples who towered at least 8ft-9ft tall! Two men discovered a cave network in Death Valley in the early-1930s, a cave system that they said contained ancient treasures, heirlooms, tribal artifacts, and the mummified remains of three gigantic humans. However, the two explorers who alleged to have found these caves could never prove their existence, and both men later disappeared mysteriously. Inspired by the elusive stories of Death Valley National Park, Anderson Design Group poster artists hand-rendered a vintage poster of what our artists thought the giant mummies might have looked like. Fashioned in the retro art style of the early-20th century, this artwork is available as a print, canvas, metal sign, mini-canvas, notecard, or postcard.
