This monolith sits tucked into the Arborvitae boughs in the basin of Shepherd’s Meadow (very near the end of the most famous snow-sledding run in Battle Creek!). It possesses a contemplative quality and presence far beyond its rather minimal appearing form. A stone sphere that once hung in its window opening (see photo below) sadly disappeared many years ago. It was created by renowned Michigan artist Hugh Timlin, a sculptor, teacher, farmer and poet who died Mar 27, 2009. It was a gift from George C. McKay and Michigan Council for the Arts. Medium: Stone
Location Leila Arboretum, 928 Michigan Ave W, Battle Creek, MI 49037
