Subtractive Sculpting with Stone
Carving stone into sculptures is an activity older than civilization itself. Most prehistoric sculptures are human figures carved in stone, Others such as Michelangelo during the Renaissance claimed to be freeing human forms from the stone. If you ever travel in Italy you will find stone sculptures everywhere. If you travel any where in the world you will find carvings of stone from the past.
Carving Stone can be a very meditative or frustrating experience, it is a subtractive form of sculpting and sometimes you knock off too much. A good sculpture will contain some of your own sweat & Blood (Don't worry I have band aids)
Create a drawing that is a piece in itself, that is your plan for the sculpture. (Because every good sculpture, comes from a good Drawing)
Carve Your concrete block with the chisels and files to create your sculpture
Create a Base if it is needed
