The title of Curt Walters’s Grand Canyon panorama, Cimmerian Whispers, as the artist says, “comes from Homer. The Cimmerii were a mythical people in the land of darkness. The wanderings of ancient Anasazi Indians seeking refuge within the walls of this great canyon remind me of the Cimmerii!” Perhaps the Anasazi, as Walters conceives them, are the shadows that play across the many-hued layers, or perhaps they are the roving, roaming patches and streaks of light.
