"In 2013, Florida-based artist Celeste Roberge created an artwork based on a steel mesh framework filled with 4000lb of locally-sourced stones. The frame is a rough outline of her own body, slightly bigger than life size, and the stones are all jumbled inside. It is an evocative piece, capturing the movement of the human body, the rigidity of the steel and the enormous age of the stones. The steel framework seems at once to give the stones form but also to imprison them, like a cage. Rising Cairn is a powerful piece of art in anybody’s book:"

Rocks are a common depiction of weight, and the fact that these sculptures weigh 4,000 pounds needs no further explanation.
