Description

"Stone" captures the enduring quality and varied uses of stone: a building material, a medium for sculpture, and a part of landscape. Photographs from around the world -- including Roman ruins in Sicily, India's Palani Temple, Normandy, Stonehenge, the Great Wall, Kyoto, and New York -- are juxtaposed with text by a leading authority on stone and culture.
