“Venter Harfe” by Norbert Maringer. Gneiss boulder, processed and polished.

”Vent’s Harp“, a reddish stone placed almost inconspicuously on a hill. It looks small against the steep slopes and the mountain peaks towering high above Vent. Majestic and popular summits are among them: Wildspitze, Großer Ramolkogel, Talleitspitze. However, there are also less to rarely climbed peaks in between, for instance Gampleskopf or Taufkarkogel. Modest and yet harmonious, the boulder blends in with the rough mountain environment. Its resounding name "Vent’s Harp" carries weight, not only due to the shape of this art work which is based on a harp in a fairly abstract manner. Also, because it makes music sound for the eye and the imagination. By reflecting the sun's rays on the stone, an “optical” light sound is created according to the artist's intention. From a different perspective, the stone sculpture appears to have grown out of the ground. It could also be an animal sitting on the hill, maybe a frog or toad? There are absolutely no limits to the visitor's imagination.
