Sculpture: Stone on Stone.
A wonderfully tactile and beautiful sculpture of an African Fishing Eagle feeding, hand carved from Spring stone stone, which is both delightful to look at and to touch. Unlike other forms of sculpture it is unique since the patterns in the stone cannot be replicated. The piece is carved using a diamond tipped chisel due to the hardness of stone. It is then sanded for literally hours through varying degrees of sand paper until the artist reaches 2500 grade sand paper. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave this wonderfully tactile surface. The contrast between the polished and unpolished surface make this piece particularly attractive.
Perhaps the perfect ornament to fill that special space. Or maybe a different kind of gift for that special someone or occasion. The sculpture is suitable for inside or outside the home, requiring minimal care.
