With this work I am dealing with borders and separation. The tree, the wall and the chair are all carved into the stone and are part of the rock they are on. The two stones that make up the body of the piece were one but have been broken. The wall presents an artificial barrier. The white seam near the tree presents a natural suggested border but was a break point for the larger stone as you can see by its alignment with one of the edges of the larger piece.
