Basalt is the most primal solid material of the earth. After flowing out of a

volcano, molten magma cools down and transforms into stone. A shrinking

process creates closely adjoined, geometrically formed columns. When the

cooling process is very slow, perfect hexagonal forms are created by reason

of a universal physical law.
The basalt columns above are thus an envoy from a primordial state—

ambassadors of the beginning. Irregularly shaped and sheathed in their own

brownish skin, the stones appears figure-like to the beholder. Some of the

sculptures above, with a vertical cut, connecting heaven and earth, divides

them into two halves: one rough, the other uncovered and smooth.
