The Temple Cairn Stone

Cairns, ahus, stone stacking, rock balancing, inuksuk (also spelled "inukshuk") creating stacked rock temples, natural markers of beauty using the primary found object - rock, stone or pebbles, etc.


Similar to Japanese Ishidoro stone monuments, such as Gorinto, and Hokyo-into this set is in celebration of the lovely mature Cherry Tree Colonnade at the University of Washington, in a procession from the twin Art and Music buildings.


These have a commonly included feature of space, distance and time -- structures such as relationships shown marked out by the concrete grid, which brings us to the topic of human interactions. Interactions with nature, with each other, and with ourselves.
