A Pyramid and a Rock

Yes, you are looking at a knitted sculpture in the shape of a giant rock.  The piece is in fact a giant replica of a smaller rock, a fragment of one of the Pyramids at Giza taken by a young boy (the artist) on a trip with his family (he did put it back... eventually).  The backstory on this sculpture is pretty interesting, if you have a moment to read about it << here >>.

Andy Holden created this piece, in addition to some other knitted work shown below.  Can you imagine how long it took to knit all of that fabric?  That's a lot of surface area.  I'm definitely going to keep an eye on his web site, in hopes of seeing more knitted medium used in the future.
