First things first

A very interesting fact in sand dunes wall murals is that dunes can actually be very large geographic features or just small bumps, contrary to popular belief. Furthermore, they are also classified by their shapes, with five major looks. The crescentic dunes are shaped like a wide letter C. They are not just the fastest-moving type of dune, and also the most common, which is evident in many sand dunes wall murals like "Dune and the Tree", albeit in the background of a solitary tree. There are also linear dunes which form straight or nearly straight lines. Some are even shaped like a wiggling snake which develops where wind pressures are nearly equal on both sides of a dune. The sand dunes wall mural "Golden Palouse" is a great example of this. The remaining three are star dunes, dome dunes and parabolic dunes. See which ones you can spot any of these in our beautiful array of sand dunes wall murals.

Some sand dunes wall murals

While there are many different locations in sand dunes wall murals, the arguably most intriguing is Dead Vlei. Roughly translated, this name means "dead marsh". It is found among the tallest dunes in the world, with some almost as lofty as the Empire State Building! Once upon a time, this location had a river draining into it, nourishing desert life and even trees. However, about 900 years ago the climate dried up, and dunes cut off Dead Vlei from the river. It became too dry in Dead Vlei for the trees to even decompose, as you can see in the sand dunes wall mural named "Deadvlei with Dead Trees". Notice that they simply scorched black in the sun, basically becoming monuments to their own destruction. The trees, now over 1000 years old, form a barren forest that can be the focal point of your interior decoration. Sand dunes wall murals by Photowall like this can be the highlight of any interior!

More knowledge, more power

If you want to have a definite description when people ask about your sand dunes wall murals, tell them that a dune is a mound of sand formed by the wind, usually along the beach or in a desert. They are formed when wind blows sand into a sheltered area behind an obstacle, where they grow as grains of sand accumulate. Check out this movement in the sand dunes wall mural aptly named "Shapes of the Wind II". In this image, you will also see that every dune has a windward side and a slipface. The windward side is obviously the side where the wind is blowing and pushing grains up. The slip face is simply the side without, or minimal, wind. As you will see in many sand dunes wall murals, the slipface is usually smoother than a windward side. You will find real life photographs that get better with each viewing because of their intricate details like "Desert Dunes V", but also more dramatic sand dunes wall murals such as "One Set of Footprints".
