I had driven past this inspiring formation many times which was in my home state and always strained out the windows to get a good look as my dad drove past. I was very disheartened when it collapsed and been wanting to find some way to represent this marvel of nature which is now lost forever to us. I offer a likeness carving into slate stone seems very appropriate.
The Old Man of the Mountain was a series of five granite cliff ledges on Cannon Mountain in Franconia, New Hampshire, United States, that appeared to be the jagged profile of a human face when viewed from the north. The rock formation, 1,200 feet (370 m) above Profile Lake, was 40 feet (12 m) tall and 25 feet (7.6 m) wide.
It became a landmark and a cultural icon for the state of New Hampshire. It collapsed on May 3, 2003. It remains a visual icon on the state's license plates and in other places.
