I hate to be picky, but the monument looks as though it’s not level.

I hope you’re not right. Looking at it very closely, I think that it’s the photograph. The horizontals in the monument seem to be parallel to the bin tops and what I can see of fence behind the trees, so I think the whole photo is on a tilt. I’ve reproduced the photo as it was on the BALI site. A good lesson to learn about how important it is to use a good photographer to promote one’s work!
