The mountain cairns of Pontus Jansson


The video of rock balancing master Pontus Jansson and his cairns.

Who doesn’t love cairns? Built out of stacks of stones, these landmarks have been used since prehistoric times above all in the mountains where they serve as essential markers to indicate the path across barren terrain. Apart from being extremely functional, at times these piles transform into a true work of art, like these stone hearts created by Sweden’s Pontus Jansson who manages to balance rocks with nothing more than gravity.
