After Seeing What This Couple Did, I’ll NEVER Look At A Pile Of Stones The Same Way Again.

The application of stone in both the foundation of a home or as decoration goes back to the dawn of civilization. The pyramids in Egypt, Stonehenge in England, and even a city carved into the side of a mountain in Jordan are celebrated as the absolute best in stone building and carving.

Artists Andreas Kunert and Naomi Zettl of Ancient Art of Stone are bringing this lost art to modern times. The Canadian duo has taken their talent to new heights by taking things like fireplace mantels and walls and turning them into works of art. Most of the stones used in their projects are found locally in Vancouver Island, British Columbia while others come from more exotic locales.

Their rock collages and carvings showcase the incredible amount of time and painstaking effort to achieve incredibly unique pieces. Kunert and Zettl don’t just layer on the rocks but create a mosaic, featuring flow and harmony that mirrors earthy elements.

The large swirl encompassing the fireplace is a metaphor for the ebbs and flows of life.

Integrating wood elements into this piece, like the pillars featured, creates a more visually appealing piece.

The wall called Flight of the Swallow represents the wind, wings, and the spirit of the beautiful bird.

This mural was commissioned by the town of View Royal, British Columbia.

Measuring at 12'x 650,' it is the largest mural to date the couple has created.

It has been prominently featured in the town since October 2011.

A man wanted to revamp his yard as a gift for his wife. He turned to Kunert and Zettl for an innovative design.
