Monumental and Miniature

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

I recently went hiking through the Grand Canyon with my boyfriend and was struck by how freaking beautiful the place is. There was a class at my art school called “Monumental and Miniature,” and I didn’t take it so I don’t know what it was about, but those words sum up the Grand Canyon pretty well. It seems like all of the big rock faces on the sides of the canyon are repeated in a miniature way in all of the small rocks that have fallen off and lie in the valleys. You could look at any rock, no matter what size, and see monumental and miniature worlds everywhere within it.
