Mountain with his father. He’s in search of a volcanic rock he intends to sculpt in his workshop, and he finds it in an icy river. Packing it home, and then learning how to work the stone, he runs up against challenges that enlighten his hands, his heart, and even his relation to humankind. Stones have always been viewed as foundations of community, symbols of self, and embodiments of sacred wisdom. While painstakingly sculpting his stone over the course of a year, Laird examines the persistence of this powerful symbolism.A Stone’s Throw is about the weaving together of the stories by which we construct our lives, individually and collectively. As Ross Laird crafts a volcanic rock into a piece of sculpture, he peels back the façade of the present to reveal the contemporary world as a place where the past is forever working out its unfinished dreams.From the Hardcover edition.
