Rock Sculpture

Stone cairns, no mortar, no glue.
By Thea Alvin, myearthwork.com

A cairn is a man-made pile (or stack) of stones. The word comes from the Scottish Gaelic: càrn (plural càirn) yet cairns can be found all over the world. Cairns are often erected as landmarks, a use they have had since ancient times. Since prehistory, they have also been built as sepulchral monuments, or used for defensive, hunting, ceremonial, astronomical and other purposes.
