Sculpture Trail LULTZHAUSEN (1999)
Stones indelibly mark their place in the landscape for decades and perhaps for centuries. The work of the sculptors and their pieces of art in Lultzhausen represent a further stage in the development of this cultural landscape. Their hands have transformed the (primal) stone in the same way as the farmer applies himself to the cultivation of the agricultural landscape. The stones characterise the landscape, reinforcing the observer’s impressions and vice versa. Nature and its structures repeat themselves over and over again in the sculptures...The Austrian sculptor Karl Prantil, initiator of the first “Symposium of European Sculptors” in St. Margarethen (Burgenland, Austria) summed it up:
“The stones should remain where they were created, there for all people. It is different to museums. Encountering such a stone in nature reveals a different experience. You experience the trees, the grass, the moss and the clouds, too.”
“Harmonising nature and culture – experiencing nature and culture » The Upper Sûre Nature Park has been attempting to communicate new cultural qualities under this motto for a number of years – and at the same time to develop an environmentally sound and socially responsible form of tourism for future generations.This involves the preservation of our natural, cultural and historical heritage and the establishment of new projects for the benefit of the people in the region – in association with the idea of a natural park – the harmonisation of ecological, economic, cultural and social interests.
The Sculpture Trail in Lultzhausen is one part of the “Road of Peace”. This is an art project, which joins peacefully European nations from Moscow to Paris.(www.strasse-des-friedens.net) You will find a further sculpture trail in Bilsdorf/Arsdorf.
The Multi-cache “Symposium” GCJJGD is very well suited to visit all the sculptures.
