Abstract

‘Strata Blocks/Fault’, ('Plate Tectonics & Mini Earthquake', Site 7), as part of Belshaws Sculpture Park, (ASSI), Belshaws Quarry National Nature Reserve on Benson’s Rd., Whitemountain, Lisburn, Northern Ireland. This artwork is a sculpture created in cast concrete. It is created from three separate cast blocks set together within the Belshaws Sculpture Park. The three cast blocks have been cast in layers. White & grey cement, sand, marble chips, as well as a variety of coloured pigments have been used within the sculpture to depict layers of 'geological strata', that underly the site. Working up form the sculpture base, these strata layers depict rock formations in Sandstone, Red Sandstone, Mudstone, Green Sandstone, Limestone with flint, & Basalt. The sculpture also represents a geological feature at the site, know as a 'fault'. The sculpture is 1.5m. x 1.5m. x 1m. approx. and weighs over 1.5 tonnes.
