Hand carved from Opal Stone this sculpture is very tactile. Unlike other forms of sculpture it is unique since the stone is extremely hard and only used by the most experienced of sculptors. The piece is carved using a diamond tipped chisel. 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 whilst revealing the beautiful colors.
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.
