>> tell me about this. what's the inspiration for these rock sculptures?
>> we are standing here at the rockefeller center . so i thought i need something very basic. and i gave nine standing figures. as a group, they are called human nature .
>> and how tall are these?
>> they are all between 18 and 22 feet tall.
>> wow. what do they respect?
>> they are blue stones and they represent the most basic human figure.
>> how much do these things weigh?
>> one leg is zen on tseven tons.
>> seven tons? that's a lot of rock for rock center. how hard was it to create these things? how did you get the top rock up there?
>> we needed a crane, each rock. even if they look humble and simple, engineer-wise, it was a real accomplishment to get them together.
>> it really is. to see it all together like you're seeing now is an accomplishment, but to see it in person is really amazing. congratulations on this. this is really fantastic.
>> thank you very much.
