“Schalen unter Schalen“ by Erika Inger. Gneiss boulders.

“Bowls among Bowls“ could have been an artwork created by a human from the Stone Age. Its title is based on the prehistoric bowl-shaped stones that can be found all over the Alpine area. As well on the crossing routes that have led from the South over Alpine ridges to Vent since ancient times. We are talking about rocks or stones in which man-made hollows in the form of bowls have been carved out. Science puzzles over the meaning of such cup-marked stones and their function. Was it sacrificial bowls or did they show astronomical signs? Were fires kindled in it to communicate with other tribes from a distance? Perhaps they had no special function at all, but arose as a cultural achievement – as original works of art. Just like the boulders here, in which artist Erika Inger has carved semicircular hollows. What will people be puzzling over the meaning of these bowls in a few millennia?
