These multi-colored rocks are found in Morocco near Tarfraoute among the Anti-Atlas mountains. This piece of landmark art work was done by Jean Veran, a Belgian artist in 1984. The rocks provided the perfect natural canvas for the artist.  Although Mr. Veran was the main visionary for this project, he had assistance from Moroccan firemen. The fireman helped by hosing 18 tons of paint over the rocks. Due to extreme weather conditions and time constraints, the color progressively faded. In 2010, however, the rocks received a fresh new coat of paint.
