Humber River rock sculptor revealed


The 39 mysterious rock sculptures that appeared in the Humber River Monday are the work of 48-year-old Toronto photographer Peter Riedel.

We can still pretend it was the work of a darkness-cloaked lost soul.

Riedel, who spent four hours Sunday balancing the rocks, was alerted by his friend Tuesday morning that his sculptures made the news.

"It was a real thrill to see it in the paper," Riedel told the Toronto Star. "It was a nice way to wake up with a coffee."

Riedel started balancing rocks a few years ago when he saw a man doing it in Vancouver's English Bay "I find it a really nice way to relax and get a bit of a workout at the same time," he said.

I think he meant to say, "Creating sculptures at dusk is the only way to alleviate the throbbing pain of losing my one true love."
