Tooth of Time

Montraker, Vrsar, 1993

Minimalistic monolithic form Tooth of Time by its simplicity and size evokes the ambiguity of prehistoric menhirs. From its elliptic base it gradually narrows towards a three-sided prism on its top. The roughness of the surface is in complete contrast to its tight outline. Organically simple and inorganically constant, Tooth of Time stands as a permanent sign of transience.

The Montraker international sculpturing school of stonemasonry was founded in 1991. It is located in an abandoned ancient stonepit near the Istrian town of Vrsar. Years of continuous operation of the school created the park of sculptures scattered in the wooded landscape of the peninsula.
