Stone Faces


Not a new psych-stoner outfit but a romantic visual essay on anthropomorphic simulacra in stone, such as this fine fellow.

‘Stones have life, they can suffer illness, old age, and death. When cut, stones can grow. Stones cover themselves with figures. According to Alberti, nature had carved Solomon’s seal on a stone found in a field near Verona, as if with a ruler. At Freiburg, a stone ‘of alabandite’ bore the image of monkeys… Similarly, in Lake Alsatia, near the Misnesis Mountains, figures of frogs and fish, in copper, have been found drawn upon the surface of stones.‘ Jurgis Baltrusaitis, Aberrations
