Indigenous legend has it that the ghost spirit Pavla Blanca made a home for herself in White Sands National Park, as she never gave up searching those sand dunes for her lost lover, the Spanish conquistador Hernando de Luna. Even to this day, some visitors to the park say they spotted the ghost of a Spanish maiden approaching them, shrouded in a windswept swirl of white sand. Intrigued by the story of the resident ghost of New Mexico’s second National Park, Anderson Design Group poster artists rendered an original illustration of what we think Pavla Blanca might look like. Available as a poster, print, canvas, metal sign, mini canvas, notecard, or postcard, this artwork would make an excellent souvenir from a trip to the park or a great gift for a true believer!
