A French artist has been assembling stone sculptures on the edge of the Hudson River in Riverside Park. The carefully balanced stones apparently have no adhesives or wires connecting them. When they are knocked down, the artist builds new ones.
They resemble the cairns that can be found at places with natural beauty or spiritual meaning.
Sekhar Ramakrishnan saw “three separate stone arrangements or sculptures on my way home from Fairway. Apparently, they are just balanced, with no wires or adhesives. A woman I spoke to had seen the artist at work. Two are still up, roughly between 110th and 120th St along the river.”
“I met the sculptor, a French guy of maybe 30 years old, but that’s all I know,” wrote Lucas Bernard. “He said he rebuilds it all the time as people knock it down.”
