A sculpture created to mark the Olympic Games in Dorset celebrates the beautiful stone of the area. The Jurassic Stones sculpture is a collection of 16 prehistoric boulders mounted on steel plinths on the approach to Weymouth and Portland. Each boulder weighs between two and nine tonnes. The sculpture is near the Jurassic roundabout in Littlemoor, Weymouth, and is close to the venue for the Olympic and Paralympic sailing events.
The sculpture was designed by Devon-born artist Richard Harris who said: "I was inspired to work with the large Bencliff Grit stones when they were revealed by the road excavations on Southdown Ridge, to preserve them and to give them a new life after millions of years under ground."
