The balanced rock sculptures by Michael Grab rely on gravity and demonstrate spectacular stone art works which are inspiring and amazing. The land artist creates fabulous towers and orbs of small balanced rocks using just creativity, patience and an astonishing sense of balance.

The art of stone balancing has been practiced by various cultures around the world for centuries. Grab says that he personally finds the process of balancing rocks to be therapeutic and meditative.

Over the past few years of practicing rock balance, simple curiosity has evolved into therapeutic ritual, ultimately nurturing meditative presence, mental well-being, and artistry of design.

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.
