Menhir

My mother lives on Öland, an island in the south of Sweden. For ages the people here were living from and with the sea—swedes, vikings and before them other forgotten tribes. One day while strolling along the seashore, I found a mysterious circular mound. Apparently it was the wall of an ancient village, which together with cult sites, tools and fetish objects can be found all over the island. 

For ages, these things decomposed. One might become a bit nostalgic or even sad in front of all these lost objects. But in fact nothing will ever be lost. Every little piece will morphs into something new.
