The Cradle of Humankind comprises 47,000 hectares of rural wilderness, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site on account of its paleontological treasures and unique landscape.The stones are found and arranged in groups of fifty following the lines of the land; the number fifty symbolic of regeneration and the universe expressed by in- dividual lives.The work offers the viewer to participate in the dedication to her son?s formative years, and is a unique place of contemplation. 6671 Days explores the passing of time whilst acknowledging the importance of family bonds and our direct connection to the land.
