Signifying strength in unity, the pillar-like sculpture is made out of stacked layers of different types of stone.
Just as a community is made of different individuals, the pillar stands proud and becomes iconic because it is fortified by its many parts. Using a computerized numerical controlled water-jet to slice the stone into thin layers, the design reinterprets the traditional African theme of community with modern fabrication technology.
The diverse stones reorganize and combine themselves in a new configuration to reveal both a sense of mass and fragility.
