This is a non-sewing post; sorry.
We have a feature at the end of our driveway called "Sword in the Stone." We had it made by a local artist shortly after we moved into our house, and it's been a part of the property ever since.
Yes, that's a real sword, and it's embedded (and securely epoxied!) into a real stone that weighs nearly half a ton.
This morning I went out to get the paper and was greeted by this:
Someone went to great pains to upend the main rock and shift around the others (Note: yes, the sword is missing its handle too; that was previously lost to weathering).
Fortunately, we can set the rock back upright and make it look pretty again. But the thought of someone choosing to damage a piece of art just burns me up.
Sorry for the vent, but does anyone have any clue what makes people do things like this? Besides an excess of alcohol and stupidity?
