The Marble and Granite Centre – Antithesis of Sarcophagi

Fresh Gardens
Martin Cook and Gary Breeze have created a garden set inside a giant granite cube. The Antithesis of Sarcophagi Garden is a representation of a world turned inside out; a garden inside a sculpture; desolation versus nature. The 44-tonne cube contains a mysterious rejuvenating woodland, invisble from the stark, ash-charred exterior other than through cracks in its surface.
