Stone Spiral

2000

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.  This work is a stone spiral created out of stone found in exactly the same spot when a tree stomp was removed.  The spiral is constructed around the Gnomic root5 structure or the golden mean, and the largest of the stones at the maximum height of the spiral faces directly down the river valley and is angled to catch the rays of the setting sun exactly at the time of the equinox.
