Rutland Square Bench and Sundial

Rutland Square Bench and Sundial

Incorporating an original fossil tree stump, this sculptural bench and sundial deals with the passage of time, representing several layers of time; the fossil (deep time), the rings of a tree stump (centuries and decades), fallen leaves (the annual cycle), the sundial (days, hours and minutes). The inscription, from the Tao of Lao Tsu, is a focus for contemplation of the theme.

Commissioned by the Rutland Square Association, Edinburgh
