In late 1999 after the completion of the building of Berman House, there came the monumental task of repairing the landscape and somehow seamlessly blending the garden with the surrounding bushland.  The Berman House Sculptures are a response to the materials to hand and the need for order in the (ordered) chaos of the wilderness.  All works were designed by Bronwyn Berman and constructed by Merv Wood and Bronwyn Berman. The stone in this work was painstakingly gathered by hand from a steep hillside deep inside the wilderness.  The stone comes naturally in a cubic formation.  The work is about the strength and heaviness of the stone forms against the lightness of the sphere.
