Commissioned for Jordan Woods Natural Area by the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation Department near Portland, OR
three granite boulders cut and sandblasted with text including the words Bryophyta, Mossument, and Latin species names of mosses found in situ; moss is planted and will accumulate over time on the stones
Mossuments presents a monument to mosses, the ubiquitous yet often under-appreciated denizens of the Northwest forest. Each stone is both a monument to the species and habitat for mosses to live on. Over time, the stones will gradually become overgrown with moss.
