These naturally sculpted dust pillars have unique shapes; some are shaped like ancient castle temples, pagodas, swords, rousant eagles, running horses, soldiers with helmets, and so on. Everyone who sees them likens them to the works of God. Mineral substances like mica and quartz decorate the pillars and in the sunshine it makes the dust forest even more colorful and gorgeous.
