An Appreciation of Stone (21)

Briar Hill sandstone from the junkpile

[Ston Wurks by Rick Anderson]

To carry on the theme from earlier in the week of the Easter Island Moai. I have decided to sneak in one of my earlier stone head offerings. These early heads are scattered far and wide across the U.S. and who knows what has happened to most of these heads.

For awhile another stone head was in a bar in Columbia, SC and became something of a Beer God, the patrons would make offerings by rubbing a little of their 1st beer onto the top of the head. Sadly I have not been able to find any of those images from that time frame to scan in and share.

At any rate, it’s on(posted), and it sandstone. This one stands guard in my Sisters backyard overlooking the swimming pool.
