Want to relive the trip? Look back on the Gawker's Guide to the transport.
The boulder's voyage across Southern California brought to mind the master movers of stone—the ancient Egyptians.
Curious about how the sculpture came to be? Doug Pray made a documentary, Levitated Mass: The Story of Michael Heizer's Monolithic Sculpture, which debuted in 2013. The film traces the boulder's famed journey from concept to completion. Read more about the experience of filming Levitated Mass in this interview with the filmmaker.
