Glacial Erratic Rock Sculpture

Robert Siebelink's avatar Robert Siebelink

A Glacial Erratic is basically a Boulder or Rock transported into Michigan by Glacial activity during the last 10,000/15,000 years during at least 5 Ice Ages. These Boulders are prevalent above ground many times today as "Field Stones" - used as building materials for homes or basements [Michigan Basements] My entry will be using much larger Hand Selected boulders and stacked like a Christmas Tree shape with the larger boulders obviously on the bottom and progressively smaller rocks on top. The bottom boulder I presently have in place weights 2700 lbs. They will all be core drilled using 2" and 3" steel pipes to stack the rocks. There will be 5 different Cairns - the 12' being the largest !! A 10' - 8' - 6' - 4' also - There will now be 5 Cairns of various size in my installation.
