Artist's description:

Baler's Cap, South Downs Way, Hampshire.

Overlooking what would become the English Channel and the Solent eight to ten thousand years ago, in the last great tsunami to flood the plains between what is now the island of the UK and mainland Europe.

This stone was a way marker on the passage through the hills to the west of Winchester towards Eastbourne.

And what did these people say to each other as they were working? How would the person who came up with the idea sell it to the others? How would they persuade them to help him or her get this huge chunk of rock stood up on end in the right place? How long were they working on it? Was it a "profession"? Was there like, an 'architect' or someone you went to who 'knew' about these things? Maybe there were 'wandering rock standers for hire...?

Oil pastel, chalk, charcoal, graphite and marker pen.
