The Wind Cathedral of Namibia Desert

Is this a real photo of the Wind Cathedral in the Sossusvlei region of the Namibia Desert?

It’s actually an artwork called Wind Draperies by Paul Godard. This digitally manipulated artwork is part of Godard’s utopian vision of Namibia’s landscape. The perspective has been altered as you can see here.

The Wind Cathedral is a real place, though. See e.g. here or here. But it doesn’t look like the artwork that is being shared as a real photograph.
