Stone prayers

Yesterday in I stopped by the mysterious South Austin rock garden and saw these two messages in ephemeral stone.

Pray for wisdom: stones, South Austin Pray for peace: stones, South Austin

I'm sure the neighbors know who this artist is but I don't. The rock garden is down the street from a sweet art park which he or she may also have a hand in.

I do not get it. What is the big deal about the rocks? Can't understand the meaning of the message....

One says "pray for wisdom", the other says "pray for peace".

Doesn't 'ephemeral' mean 'fleeting'? A strange thing to call stone.

Yes, stone is usually used for the most permanent of art (or nearly permanent -- remember Ozymandias). But this person works by placing rocks in temporary arrangements which will disappear the next time a car scrapes a curb or a fifteen-year-old kid feels like knocking something down.
