The deep and mysterious hollow is called the “Sky Garden”. This is a uniquely shaped garden that fascinates many tourists who visit.
This “Sky Garden” is the Irish Sky Garden, located in Russagh, Co. Cork, Ireland, designed by James Turrell, a renowned architect with large-scale projects involving light and space.
The “Sky Garden” is a contemporary work of art with outstanding shape and aesthetics. It is often referred to as a bridge between two worlds, with many strange fairy tales around it.
Depending on the person, the “Sky Garden” can appear hollow or a bowl. Its structure features a central rock formation reminiscent of the altars of ancient Celtic and Egyptian civilizations. In the middle, a floating altar emerges, with stone footrests on both sides, allowing visitors to lie face up and gaze out towards the edge of the volcano above.
From the inside, all visitors can see is a blue sky and lush green grass below, evoking ancient past rituals. Architect James Turrell states, “The most important thing is that the inside becomes the outside and vice versa. Through this, the relationship between the landscape and the alien sky changes.”
If you have ever struggled to clear your mind during meditation, a moment inside the “Sky Garden” may help you temporarily relieve stress.
