Stone is sacred because it is a part of mother earth; seperated, hewn, sculpted, relocated, it continues to be a fragment of her existence. Stone provides a dynamic connection between human life and the marvelous sphere that is our home. Sacred Stones is an incantation on the mystery, power, and celebration that comes into being through the energy of stone.

Monuments of stone extol the virtues and creativity of man. Stone images and circles become pathways of ritual for discovering the eternal.
