Located within the Seymour River Heritage Park this piece can be found on the river bed situated directly behind Maplewood Farm. Through a series of five stones proceeding from sharp to smooth the artwork illustrates the accelerated affects of the natural forces inherent to the site. In the winter, when the river is running high, some or all of the stones become submerged causing them to tilt or slide. Each spring, as the water recedes, the sculpture is revealed in a new and transformed state.
