Diary of a Rock Balancer ::
Stone Balance Art created and photographed by Michael Grab — 28 February 2016 — South Island, New Zealand ::
this is the first pagoda style formation i’ve built. a product of both the specific context and also some time spent with my friend Pascal, who is another exceptional earth balancer going by the name Gravity Meditation. Through him, I’ve come to know and identify these towers as “Gaia Inukshuks”. Basically a fairly large step pattern with each layer separated by 3 small rocks, acting as the tripod for each subsequent layer. highly wind resistant if built carefully.
anyway, building this one was a powerful experience. And it is the only balance i’ve left standing thus far in New Zealand, due to its more remote location. and unless there is an earthquake, I recon it will remain even through some of the highest winds i’ve encountered on the south island.
As i was saying, with respect to being a product of the immediate setting, this river valley had a beautiful assortment of large slabs of rock as seen here, perfect for this style. And local wind flowing through this valley essentially guided my building of such a sturdy tower.
Now, for me, the whole point of the Gaia Inukshuk is to be built and left standing in a remote setting of awe and beauty on this lovely planet. built slowly and deliberately (each tower experiences a huge input of meditative flow energy. . .) which ultimately maximizes stability and strength for lasting life, all while accumulating energy in the area over time, with intention of building and/or strengthening felt power spots; centers of high energy accumulation.. similar to what I felt at Franz Josef Glacier. This is actually not too far away from FJG, and partially fed off the recent experience. I won’t give more clues about location, as to help preserve its life from the hands of curious humans.
and perhaps sometime, someone might accidentally see it, sit with it, and contemplate its being. . . which i hope may elevate the energy of both the spot AND the observer.
[…] decided to blend the recent pagoda build from yesterday with more precision balance on top.. turned out kinda cool, most difficult part was getting decent […]
Gravity is gravipush. What is gravipush? (Gauv Grauv’s top science theory)
In the multiverse big bang, bang everywhere when it is ready. It doesn’t matter big bang or small bang or tiny bang or hand clap bang, all the bang are energy that have release into the universe everywhere in space and bothers to all objects even atom or particle that I call: “stress pressure of the universe”. Those stress pressure travel straight line in space to all direction in speed of light without block each other and push to all objects form together even atom call “gravipush” (old word call gravity). All objects in space have blocked each other stress pressure of the universe made the stress pressure unbalance so those objects will run toward low pressure to each other by gravipush. Bigger object has bigger mass, bigger mass has more gravinet, more gravinet can block more stress pressure and get more gravipush.
So I announce publicly: From now on no more gravity but gravipush to all scientists all over around the world. Thank you

All so beautiful, thank you for sharing your work, it’s so lovely.
Donald trump is going to need these rocks for the wall!
I think this is one of your most beautiful works.
I really enjoy the sharing with your photos. They explain so much about everything…
Agree…Gorgeous! You have a great job Michael.
Bonni Morrison I think you get the point lol
So many ❤️s!
Wouldn’t be possible,if we were on a globe,spinning at 1000mph :)

Try India sometime Garb, I’m sure you’ll like it!
Probably my fave so far!
This one is so unique, the style, the balance, the colors. Great balance shown in this piece.
I love it <3 - spread the spirit of Mother Nature ... awesome, thank's Michael (y)
Something different but still awesome.
This is one of my favorites!
Way way cool
Very beautiful. I am going to try some small ones in my backyard. I need to learn to meditate and it might help me get started.
I am sure it will … it’s kinda happen by it self while practicing Rock Balancing
That is absolutely amazing and soooo beautiful! ! ! ! !
Marvin Berndt isto é espetacular. Lê a descrição dele e espreita tb a página que ele menciona :)
Yeah but does theirs come with a group of laughing idiots. I think not!!!! Yours still wins!!!!
Maravilloso equilibrio felicidades por esta nueva forma de equilibrio
THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!
Wonderful balance and text. Can’t get a perfect read on elevation above stream, but those flowing waters might be the demise before an earthquake.
i was thinking of that, and you’re probably right. but the boulder it sits on already rises 1.5m out of the water and is anchored against the shoreline, though still not immune to flood conditions i imagine.
In my expiriance its the birds who love such spots high, “save” and overlooking … collapse is following during landing ;) – at least partly…
It sounds like a Gaia Inukshuk would be great to have in an organic vegetable garden wielding the energy for growth and health.
agree … lets build one ;)
I feel a softness combined with peaceful strength <3 You are amazing !
they might think some alien has left this for them as a sign of balance that is our Universe. Beautiful job, well done son. B| <3
I love your intentions with this one. The form suggests centeredness and lasting presence.
Love gravity meditation , love the idea of gaia inukshuks, and love your wave style! This is gorgeous .
Perfection .. yet again <3
Even thru a photo, the peacefulness is present
Every balance you do takes my breath away, the amount of artistic energy flowing with the pull of the earth and mother nature’s guidance is purely magical
one of my favs
<3 so perfect again!
Writing a book about your art form?
yes, eventually <3
They all amaze me.
Love love love it!
