This is a small piece of Carrera marble which was gifted to me by a dear friend. I use hand tools only and found this piece of marble harder than a previous sculpture of Carrera marble. The marble is about 5 3/4 inches tall.
My challenge was to allow the cleavage points to remain and only sculpt where cuts had been made when this piece was separated from a larger stone.
It is pin and sleeve mounted on a piece of wood which I believe is walnut.
