works 03 > GUARDIANS - Makamah Beach, NY, 4.29.04

Standing stones, a piece initiated by Jim Metcalfe on a beach at Newport and migrating to Long Island shores.
They seemed penguin-like, then robed monks and mindful of Rodin's Balzac,
the watching stones guarded Lizzie as she slept nestled in the rocks.
The figures quickly spread down the beach.
Coming back a few days later, some had tumbled
but other beach visitors had added to the crowd.
