This object consists of 15 individual picture frames cut and pasted depicting a long view of an ocean side cliff and surrounding hills and mountains accompanied by a framed piece.
Ponta do Capelinhos is located on the western most point of the Azores Island Faial. The landscape is a barren desert and almost lunar because of the volcanic activity. From 1957 to 1958 the the off-shore volcano Capelinhos ejected more than 30 million tons of ash and lava more than 1,000 miles high into the sky.
