I believe this stone is from the island called Shodoshima. It is my favorite whitish granite from which was made Momo Taro, the sculpture I did for the Storm King Art Center in 1977–78. There the sculpture lives as part of a hill. It was the hill that got me going, which inspired me. In the present instance I wished to make a tablelike protuberance, a landscape with a mastaba of white granite. Like the Storm King piece, it is the plane, which might mistakenly be called “table,” that gives scale and place and weight to the cube that rises, worn and rounded with age, from its depth.
