The building of cairns from loose stones for defenses, landmarks, memorials, and religious ceremonies predates written history and continues today. Ancient cairns can be found throughout the world.

Diverse sizes and shapes of feather rock fragments remaining from the building of ShanChuan Islands offers rich opportunities for constructing cairns representing famous examples from around the world, as well as inspiration for imaginary structures.
