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.
