„Eye in stone“ is the name of the sculpture, situated in the village of Lodingen. It is the product of a collaboration between the artist Anish Kapoor and Lodingen stone industry. The scultpure, a large block of stone, made of the 180 million year old Lodingen-monzonite (a granite), can be found in the mudflats at Hustad Farm, at a distance of approx. 15 km from the Vacation Centre Offersoy. At high tide the sea rises and fills up half of the polished space of the sculpture with water.
