ANCIENT DAWN - Acrylic Desk Block

Ormiston Pound, West MacDonnell National Park, Northern Territory, Australia

This photo was captured after an early morning hike to get to this location before sunrise. With the weather very calm, it was amazing to be standing watching the light change on this spectacular section of the MacDonnell Ranges, that was once higher than the Himalayas.

300-350 million years ago a mountain building event created the MacDonnell Ranges. Since that time, folding, faulting and erosion have shaped the range and created numerous gaps and gorges. The ranges are composed of many rock types, but are most famous for their red quartzite peaks and gorges. Some of the valleys of the range contain fossil evidence of the inland sea that once covered central Australia

Available in three acrylic desk block sizes:

  • 10cm x 10cm (2cm deep)
  • 19cm x 19cm (3cm deep)
  • 30cm x 30cm (3cm deep)


Acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look and make excellent gifts. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, and mantelpieces.

Each photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and a final hand polish. 

Since they are free-standing, no hanging system is required.


All Scott's acrylic desk blocks are delivered Australia wide free of charge. Postage rates apply for international delivery.


We hold a range of stock in the gallery. Your acrylic desk block will be dispatched within 2 business days if it is in stock. If not, it will be made to order and dispatched within approximately two weeks.
