Animals in Stone

Native civilizations honored the animals that surrounded them. They recognized their connection to spirit world and looked to dreams and visions while helping guide them in their day to day lives. Examples of their respect and tradition can be found across the New England Landscape. Hand worked stones shaped to resemble these animals were carefully constructed and even have significant alignments and functionality. Many stones seem to serve as ideal benches or places for reflection, meditation or perhaps celestial observation.
