Setting rocks into balance has also become a way of showing appreciation, offering thanksgiving, and inducing meditation.
Through manipulation of gravitational threads, the ancient stones create beautiful rock sculptures showing unique form and energy, symbolizing birth and death, perfection and imperfection.
