Yard is one of several stone sculptures that Cragg made in the late 1980s, exploring aspects of the man-made environment, with particular reference to shelters or dwellings. Four walls enclose a rectangular piece of stone that has been carved to reveal the shapes of a bottle, a ring and an exhaust pipe. Outside this rectangle, a separate piece of stone has been carved with another bottle. Cragg addresses the theme of man''s enduring imprint on the natural environment.
