The challenge is always to use materials in a new and different way, and make them convey meaning and portray form in a manner that has not previously been seen.
In 2005, Andrew Rogers created the geoglyph ‘Pride’, a stylised lion, at the Rhythms of Life project site in Kurunegala, Sri Lanka.
Measuring 60m x 60m, the lion is outlined with thick granite stone walls and bears the regal stance of its symbolic predecessors. Its head os represented in profile, while its body is turned so that all four legs are lined up with abstract symmetry.
This geoglyph is also locate on a sheer rock face that slopes down toward the lake below.
