  • Use the Greek Urn to teleport from place to place.  Or just fly in and around the islands.

The overall concept for the exhibition focuses on two large figures at the center of a pastoral setting -- male and female -- who are  suspended between the corporeal / material plane of earth while being lifted upward from their base existence toward philosophical ideas.   The figures are bound to the Philosopher's Stone -- the sought after alchemy to create gold -- the ultimate materialism.   
The philosophy of struggle
The Philosopher's Stone is a Caerleon Artist Collective project and in that light, we strive to create art exhibitions that are thought provoking, fun, entertaining and educational.   We encourage collaboration, sharing of knowledge, exploring ideas and experimenting with various techniques and technologies.   We welcome both seasoned and novice artists.  We are a non-profit organization that has been active in promoting art and education in Second Life since February 2008 and we have produced many large and smaller scale art exhibitions including simultaneous events in Second Life and real world art venues.

On the floating islands visitors discover the artists' 3D interpretations of 15 philosophers and in a gallery on the ground level, the same artists' 2D "flat art" interpretations.

The works of Karl Marx

...floating islands attached by ephemeral chains to circular rings connect the figures to the non-material -- thoughts, ponderings, musings, ideals and philosophies that seek to define human existence, behavior, imagination, spirituality, politics and so on.
  • Thinkerer:  Nobody ever does anything in the abstract.
