The plaque says, "A lingam is a symbolic object. Representing the Hindu God Shiva, these worshipped abstract phalluses are understood to possess mysterious and spiritual forces, allowing them to speak beyond their form. Carol Bove's sculpture, with its seemingly floating block of petrified wood, speaks of this transformative phenomenon, one marked by time and nature-communicating the mystical power of an object."
