Scary stones in the woods

Evan Oxland has sent some very interesting photos from his tour in Europe. I find it fascinating how the simplest of ideas can be so powerful.
These sculptures can be found at the famous gardens in Marqueyssac,Dordogne, France.

Roof slabs

This photo came from Canada and shows a very sound roof covering done in a similar style to those seen across Europe . It is great to see these ancient crafts being applied expertly in the new world. I have seen the same type of construction in Vermont USA built by master craftsman Dan Snow assisted by Dieter Schneider the Swiss mason.
