These carved stones echo the original stones that were donated to the Japanese American National Museum. Near the site of the Heart Mountain concentration camp cemetery, a bulldozer uncovered a 55-gallon barrel full of stones, each painted with a Japanese character (kanji). Some of these stones were donated to the Museum. Comes with an explanation card.
