THE NATIONAL CONSERVATION COMMISSION’S (NCC) general manager has his eye on the stone creations at Batts Rock as local artists cry foul over their potential dissassembly on safety grounds.

But the man behind their construction is philosophical and even admits he secretly harboured some safety concerns himself.

On Saturday, the social media website Facebook was abuzz with the news that the creative and enigmatic stone sculptures, done by 74-year-old retiree Philip King, would be demolished on the orders of NCC general manager Keith Neblett.

A number of well-known visual artists and scores of people have flooded a thread, started by visual artist Corrie Scott, calling for the stone sculptures to remain. (HLE)
