Carved in stone...

By Chinga
Carved in stone... There are as many reasons for carving stone as it offers the opportunity for artistic expression, generating a timeless piece, fulfilling a mission, satisfying a hobby inclination and/or challenging oneself in a creative outlet. Stone masonry work is such an old skilled trade, stone carving is most likely the oldest 3-dimensional art form, and I for one like it very much. Archive shots from India and Sri-Lanka.
Thank you for all your votes for the game of "Spot the creature (2), and to Sue (Sue118), and Dave (HobbitDave) who kindly awarded the set. Isabel GrinGrin
