Daryl Maddeaux Rocks!

Check this out.......Those rocks are just balancing on top of each other..... no mortar, glue, cement, screws, nails, velcro, or what have you holding them together..... here is the artist Daryl Maddeaux setting one up......and here's the final product.....here he goes again......Wow.....Daryl said he learned the art of balancing rocks growing up in Fredericton, New Brunswick.....why does he do it?..... to illustrate that "nothing is impossible"....."no matter how difficult life may seem".....(I'm paraphrasing).....I witnessed a couple of them topple over, to which Daryl says "nothing lasts forever"..... VERY COOL Daryl!

That's so cool! Isn't it weird how rocks can look cute?

Tricia said...

Very interesting! Hope those rocks don't fall on anyone though or else the artist will end up getting sued.
