Antelope Island is the largest island in Utah’s Great Salt Lake. It is a rugged landscape with some of the oldest rocks on earth, 1.7 billion year-old gneiss. It is also home to a unique herd of Bison not seen anywhere else. This scarf captures water, grass, mountain, and clouds – the beautiful progression of nature on the island.

This design was featured in the 2014 Alfred Lambourne Prize exhibition by Friends of Great Salt Lake. Friends of Great Salt Lake is a Utah non-profit that works to preserve and protect the Great Salt Lake Ecosystem and to increase public awareness and appreciation of the Lake through education, research, advocacy, and the arts. In 2014 as part of the arts section of their mission, they began an art exhibit and prize called the Alfred Lambourne Prize.
