Hearth – a living sculpture

Hearth – a living sculpture

A living sculpture watched over by two ancestral trees on the hill above.

 Hearth is a living sculpture that sits at a human and ecological crossroad – a point of connection.

A place for resting, refuge, passage and return.

Animals, plants and people have passed through here for millennia. 

Pathways that link landscapes through past and future. “

Find Hearth at the northern entrance to Ross, and follow the sculpture’s paths leading up the hill to the two ancestral trees. Using your device, you can listen to a soundscape as you explore the site.

More of the Hearth beginnings and story can be found here, the facebook page of Picture Ross.
