Rock Garden: Netherlands, Bosnia & Portugal

Rock Garden: Netherlands, Bosnia & Portugal

These rocks are from my father’s collection, which we have both been adding to over the years. I am a little ashamed to admit that I am responsible for the theft of two of these beautiful city cobblestones. But I did pay a small penance by having to haul them around town all day and then in my luggage home.  1. Cobblestone. S’Hertoghenbosch, Netherlands (2005) From the streets of the quiet and eerie namesake of the infamous Dutch artist (Bosch).

2. Marble Cobblestone. Lisbon, Portugal (2001). From the city where cobblestones are elaborate works of art portraying everything from mythological creatures to op-art, and sometimes even company logos.

3. Cobblestone. Sarajevo, Bosnia & Hercegovina (2011) These ancient paving stones are a common poetic symbol of this scarred but thriving city.
