Harvey Fite spent 37 years sculpting this abandoned bluestone quarry into Opus 40. Originally intended to display his sculptures, the pedestals, pools, and ramps took on a life of their own. The 9 ton monolith at the center was raised using the methods of the ancient Egyptians and a pickup truck. Harvey Fite died in 1976, at the age of 76, after accidentally driving his lawnmower over the edge of the quarry. Saugerties, New York.
