Balancing Rock - Digby, Canada After quite a long walk thru the woods and down many steps you finally get to see the balancing rock.
According to Wally Hayes, a first-time visitor to Balancing Rock, “I was even more awestruck when I approached for a closer view and could look under the rock through a narrow horizontal crack and see the ocean beyond.

SEED OF ROCK SOLID INNER STRENGTH "When it feels like you’ve hit rock bottom, make it part of your rock solid inner strength. Use the struggle to build a platform for growth. Stay grounded when you feel like you’re losing yourself in the rubble of regret. Stay alert, look with compassion and you will find yourself in all sorts of new ways, rising from the ashes." http://www.soulseeds.com/fb-inspiration/2012/08/seed-of-rock-solid-inner-strength/

Miyajima Island (Japan) also known as 'Shrine Island' - entire island is filled with shrines and temples - this is part of the Buddhist temple called the Daisho-in Temple. 500 Rakan statues line the sidewalk (rakan means disciple of Buddha and the 500 statues represent the 500 followers of 'Shaka,' the historical Buddha.)

"I will give you a new heart & put a new spirit inside you; I will take the stony heart out of your flesh & give you a heart of flesh. (I'll remove the stone heart from your body & replace it with a heart that's God-willed, not self-willed.)" --Ezekiel 36:26. No one is a hopeless case. Never throw that certain person away.

This closeup of a sculpture is such an interesting and exciting example of stone work detail. I find it kind of meditative as I study the image and imagine the process that the creator went through to put this together.

Ovoo (ceremonial stack of rocks and blue cloth) - A Mongolian ceremonial cairn
An ovoo (Mongolian: овоо, heap) is a type of shamanistic cairn found in Mongolia, usually made from rocks or from wood. Ovoos are often found at the top of mountains and in high places, like mountain passes. They serve mainly as religious sites, used in worship of the mountains and the sky as well as in Buddhist ceremonies, but often are also landmarks.
The Aztecs carved thousands of images of their gods in stones ranging from much-valued greenstones to ordinary volcanic rock. Sculptures like the present example were probably set up in household shrines where they were worshipped in family settings rather than in public ceremonies.

The Aztecs carved thousands of images of their gods in stones ranging from much-valued greenstones to ordinary volcanic rock. Sculptures like the present example were probably set up in household shrines where they were worshipped in family settings rather than in public ceremonies. Frequently portrayed Aztec deities are fertility goddesses, which include the water goddess Chalchihuitlicue ("she of the jade skirt") depicted here. Identifying elements of the water goddess are the distinctive headdress consisting of multiple (in life probably cotton) bands wound about the head, the thick tassels attached to each side of the head, and the pleated (in life bark paper) ornament (amacuexpalli) in back of the head. Male counterparts of the water goddess, including the rain god Tlaloc, are often shown wearing the pleated bow at the neck. Shell and/or obsidian inlays in the eyes would once have lent the face a lifelike expression.

One traveled Frenchman observed in the 18th century that Krakow's Wieliczka salt mine was no less magnificent than the Egyptian pyramids. Millions of visitors, the crowned heads and such celebrities as Goethe and Sarah Bemhardt among them, have appeared to share his enthusiasm when exploring the subterranean world of labyrinthine passages, giant caverns, underground lakes and chapels with sculptures in the crystalline salt and rich ornamentation carved in the salt rock.

The Ajanta caves are monuments cut out of rock which date from the 2nd century BCE to 600 CE. The caves include religious paintings and sculptures of Buddhism. The caves fall into the idea of a Vihara, which is the Buddhist idea of a Monestary/'quiet place to walk'. The cave contains several frescoes and narrative paintings, which is something that we've looked at as far back as Lascaux caves as well as in much more modern times.

Ajanta Caves - India The 30 caves of Ellora were carved out of a vertical face of the Charanandri hills in the 5th century AD. The cave temples are devoted to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism – demonstrating the religious harmony of the time. The Buddhist caves were primarily designated as monasteries, the Hindu caves boast paintings of the various gods, and the Jain caves feature intricately painted ceilings.
The Ajanta Caves/The Ajanta Caves (Ajiṇṭhā leni; Marathi: अजिंठा लेणी) in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra, India are about 29 rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE to about 480 or 650 CE. The caves include paintings and sculptures described by the government Archaeological Survey of India as "the finest surviving examples of Indian art, particularly painting", which are masterpieces of Buddhist religious art, with figures of the Buddha and depictions of the Jataka tales. The caves were built in two phases starting around the 2nd century BCE, with the second group of caves built around 400–650 CE according to older accounts, or all in a brief period of 460 to 480 according to the recent proposals of Walter M. Spink. The site is a protected monument in the care of the Archaeological Survey of India, and since 1983, the Ajanta Caves have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Mogao Caves The group of caves at Mogao represents a unique artistic achievement as much by the organization of space into cells and temples built on five levels as by the production of more than 2000 sculptures carved out of the rock walls, then covered with clay and painted, and the approximately 45,000 m2 of murals, among which are many masterpieces of Chinese art.

Monuments at Mahabalipuram - India. This group of sanctuaries, founded by the Pallava kings, was carved out of rock along the Coromandel coast in the 7th and 8th centuries. It is known especially for its rathas (temples in the form of chariots), mandapas (cave sanctuaries), giant open-air reliefs such as the famous 'Descent of the Ganges', and the temple of Rivage, with thousands of sculptures to the glory of Shiva.
The Wieliczka Salt Mine, located in the town of Wieliczka in southern Poland, lies within the Kraków metropolitan area. Built in the 13th century, it produced table salt until 2007. Today, the mine's attractions include dozens of statues and an entire chapel that has been carved out of the rock salt by the miners. The oldest sculptures are augmented by the new carvings by actual artists. About 1.2 million people visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine annually.

Where the Blyde River ("river of joy") and the Treur River ("river of sorrow") meet, water erosion has formed one of the most remarkable geological phenomena: Bourke's Luck Potholes. Over thousands of years, surreal cylindrical rock sculptures created by whirling water, when the once rapid river carried masses of sand and debris, have formed a series of dark pools which contrast artfully with the streaked white and yellow lichen covered rocks.
