Stonehenge….In Kansas?


Actually this is sculpture of sorts by artist Steve Murillo called “Solar Calendar”.   Made of limestone pillars, my understanding is that at local noon on the first day of each season, the sun will shine through a metal ring atop the appropriate pillar and  illuminate  a colored glass stone embedded in the ground in the center of the array.    I had never visited the stones before, as it slowly came into view through the mists I couldn’t help but think of Stonehenge.  Interesting  and clever work by Steve Murillo, and a somewhat unusual point of interest for our main park near the center of Wichita.

Here’s the glass stone at the center…

    That is so cool! It’s a beautiful sculpture. I think I would find myself there on the first day of each season at noon just to see the sun illuminate the glass. If I ever find my self in Wichita you know where to find me. Another great photo, as usual. Is this the same location where the other fog photos were taken?

  2. Thanks Ken. Yes, this is in the same general area as the other fog photos. We have a series of large parks in the core area of the city, but of course the fog made them seem much bigger and much more interesting.
