Stone-Age-Man

2001

The sculpture "Stone-Age-Man" by the artist Nils-Udo almost has the effect of an ancient temple: In the middle of the wood is an enormous cube of rock framed by a monumental architectural trunk form. The quartzite monolith weighs in at almost 150 t and, integrated into the peaceful grandeur of the forest, it forms a monument and memorial in its own right: its size, its timeless association with the earth, and its uniqueness. When exposed to this powerful entity, the rambler experiences his own temporality and vulnerability.
