  • 1.  Mascot Design Challenge submission - The Cairn

    Posted 09-28-2021 13:31

    Stacked rocks, more commonly known as Cairns, placed along the trail signify that you are on the right track. It is a marker guiding you to the correct path or trail in cases where navigation becomes difficult and the trail may be easily lost.

    There's something deeply satisfying about stacking stones. It's a common motif in Zen gardens, which seek to create order out of nature's seeming chaos. In doing so, they highlight the harmony and balance of our place in the world.

    The word "cairn" comes from a Gaelic term meaning "heap of stones." Cairns have also been referred to as "trail ducks"; in Hawaii they are called "ahu" and by Native Americans, "Wa-wa-na-quas-sick" (place of many good stones).

    I do this! But the rocks are exclusively DVD cases, still now I'll tell my wife to stop calling them "piles" and start calling them my DVD Cairns.
