Anyone who has lost a loved one knows the physical impact and often debilitating way grief can impact you. The feeling can sometimes be difficult to describe to others who are not affected, but a picture can describe a thousand words.

This 1800 kilogram stone sculpture ”Rising Clairn” is the brainchild of artist Celeste Roberge. She created the clairn (piles of stones) to depict grief following the deaths of several celebrities.

The photograph of the crouched sculpture is now shared widely on social media and has touched countless people’s lives.

My research about this fascinating sculpture found that Celeste didn’t mean to depict anguish, rather a person being able to rise up when they are ready from the weight of grief. Personally, it spoke to me about the levels of the pain and made me reflect on my own journey with grief and the weight one feels. This most recently was highlighted by the passing of someone close to me.

Roberge became intrigued with cairns after learning about human-shaped inuksuit sculptures created by the Inuit people in the Arctic region.

It is a fascinating and touching monument.
