The Barn Owl sculpture, Mallorca.
This owl sculpture was created from a block of sandstone my friend bought for me to sculpt over 2 years ago. Originally I didn't use it because it was too soft and crumbly in some places and very hard in others. Making it possible to sculpt using a paint brush while in other areas you had to use a hammer and chisel. It was fun to be able to carve the stone by mainly using an axe and a garden pick! I'm glad I persisted with this stone because I think the owl looks great sitting on top of a bolder in Monique's property in Mallorca.
