"...one of the most uplifting things that I have ever seen at Chelsea" - Monty Don

Sponsored by the Marble and Granite Centre Ltd and designed and made in collaboration with Martin Cook, Antithesis of Sarcophagi represents a world turned inside out; a garden inside a sculpture; desolation versus life; civilisation versus nature. A forty-four tonne rough granite cube, one face painted with a mysterious inscription, contains a rejuvenating woodland; only visible from the stark, ash-charred exterior through small fissures in its surface.

The planting was done with great sensitivity and precision by 7 times RHS medal winner Chris Holland.

Of the Antithesis of Sarcophagi Monty Don said,¬†“The combination of the stone and the garden hidden inside it creates one of the most uplifting things that I have ever seen at Chelsea”
