A Line in Scotland, Long

From Richard Long's Website

Richard Long's work is extremely interesting. It is created from nature, out in nature, while he is experiencing nature. He constructs using the materials from the area around him, crafting the sculpture as he spends time outside or while he's even on the move. They are markings for other explorers to see, to be enjoyed by those taking similar paths, as if he is upgrading the usual pile of stones or marked trees that aid hikers and campers to continue in the right direction. Below is a sample of some of his work. I love it :)
