This two-part stone and bronze piece is situated on a paved area at the top of a hill in Riverside Press Park. One boulder has been sliced into four parts. The parts have been reproduced in bronze, and then the resulting eight units have been rearranged into two new "boulders," one with three stone sections and one bronze section, and the other with the remaining bronze sections.

David Phillips received his BFA in Painting and his MFA in Sculpture from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. He has taught at a number of places including Flint Institute of Art, Harvard, and Mass College of Art. His studio and foundry in Somerville are not only busy with his own work, but also much of the bronze casting in the area is done under his careful supervision.
