Follies

Follies are sculptural towers of the 18th century in English parks.

The aim of this game of skill is to balance the tower and pile all the 18 bricks on top of another. Played together, each one will try to place his bricks so that the other one makes it fall. Since the one that breaks it loses.

Wooden man

Have you seen some small stone men that mark the way? They are piled stones that resist gravity.

You will be able to create your own iconic piece of piling art with the wooden man by Lessing – experiencing gravity a little bit different.
