House on the Mountain

“Haus auf dem Berg“ sculpture by Sibylle von Halem. Gneiss boulder, polished.

The artist named her work “House on the Mountain”, inspired by the farmsteads within the valley. Who were the first people to settle here and to build basic dwellings in the mountains? Archaeological excavations show that people set up camp not far from this artwork some 8000 years ago. A welcome resting place after the strenuous hike from the lower southern valleys, across Alpine ridges and past glaciers. Who knows, maybe even back then there were stone artists who were inspired by nature here? It seems reasonable the longer you look at the “House on the mountain”: For millennia, life in the Alps was only possible in perfect harmony with nature. The raw materials used were provided by the local environment, mostly wood and stones. House and rock are firmly anchored - almost as if the house had been created by nature as well and could be recaptured again by nature over time.
