Andy Goldsworthy

I found this on the web a 10 minute video giving insight into the construction of the new Andy Goldsworthy scuplture "Strangler Cairn" in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Its definately on my agenda to get in and see it in its early stages, and to watch it develop over the years.  Fingers crossed that someone doesn't decide to interfere with it.
