Created By: Tammy Rea

Point of Interest Details

Artist: John McKinnon

About: One of the truly amazing things about Haliburton County is its forests and other quiet places. Inspired by this and the phrase “A Secret Space” John created Atmo-Sphere. It provides a hidden entrance in a large granite sphere for quiet reflection. Within the enclosure is a bench on which you can sit and contemplate the quote from the poet, Rumi, carved on the floor. Don’t forget to look up and enjoy the view through the oculus in the roof top while being embraced by the sounds of nature all around. John spent a month in the summer and fall of 2013 creating this work. The stone is from the McBain Quarrie near Minden.

Materials: Granite and Cedar
