I’ve had the extreme pleasure of making art at most of the Wonders of the World. To this day, one of the largest career compliments I’ve received was to receive full access to the mysterious Stonehenge- a right granted to only two artists per year in order to preserve this historical landmark.

Stonehenge is a place of mystery. How did they get those rocks there? The same was asked of the pyramids we visited and the Moai.
Here’s some fun facts about Stonehenge:
. -It aligns to the sunset of the winter solstice and the opposing sunrise of the summer solstice. .
-Its design includes a celestial observatory function, which might have allowed prediction of eclipse, solstice, equinox and other celestial events.
.
-The monument is made out of bluestones which possess unusual acoustic properties. When struck they respond with a loud clanging noise. Bluestones were also used as church bells until the 19th century.
