The stone feature in Mountain Ash is a fine work yet scarcely comfortable viewing. Several reviewers yesterday found it 'creepy', which I accept without reservation, but it is also a fine representation of a tough way of life now gone but not forgotten. Seen below a leaden sky under persistent drizzle the effect is staggering in its power; I hope I might have captured at least the essence of the work.
Converted to b/w, clearly, though fairly close to the craggy original. A few more faces will follow in due course.
