The soapstone is a light brown base color with a few darker brown spots. Carved the traditional way, by using hand tools such as rasps and files. Polished with standard water base sandpapers up to 2000 grit to achieve a shiny finish. sealed and buffed with natural non toxic bee wax, glued with stone epoxy to the base. The carving is original and new, never been displayed, signed and dated.
The agate slice, is a locally prospected specimen, the edges left the way it found, the top surface polished.
