AT ST. LOUIS ART MUSEUM
World renowned sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy,
has completed an unusual limestone installation
in an enclosed courtyard site at the
St. Louis Art Museum.
The outdoor courtyard features a dense network
of 25 stone arches made of Missouri limestone,
each measuring 10-feet high and
weighing 300 tons in total.
He used ancient Roman dry stone engineering,
using roughly hewn stones with no mortar.
It's hard to imagine assembling these densely
arranged arches in this small courtyard space.
But here it will remain for hundreds of years.
