water and stone, sea and shell, tree and soil, bone and ash, sun and moon. all have a place in the ancient cosmos. the neolithic peoples knew the importance their ancestors placed on these elements. in actively manipulating this material, in daily life, in the building of monuments, bringing them into close relationship, one to another, they gained in their significance. this was at first, revealed through repetitive practices which in turn endorsed their special meaning. this was transferred, generation to generation and by this means, the past is reinforced in the present and its importance amplified.
