I recall Michaelangelo's comment. Of course he meant marble or granite. Shale would not work. Basalt might. Now you got me thinking about rocks.

amazing to me what the artist can bring out of a block of stone

always impressed by those who can sculpt. seems like a backward process to me. i could build out but not chip away.

Beautiful sculptures! I love Michelangelo’s quote about finding the statue in the stone. It reminds me that people, too, can find something good within themselves with which to carve a life.

Denise, great job on these mosaics, especially with the framing around each picture. I've never seen one done quite like it. Love museums.

I am afraid it would stay lost in the stone if it were left for me to find it! But I do like the the thought that that is really a true statement!
