The raven, as symbol found in almost all cultures from the stone age to modern times. It differs in meanings, by frightening to hope and reassuring. Inspired artists all over the world in sculptures paintings, poems and books. It’s my turn now to present my fantasy with this minimalist style carving.
The medium is black wonder stone, a kind of soapstone, precisely Pyrophyllite, that has finely grained texture, and takes an excellent polish. This carving is a minimalist style, yet detailed as much the stone allows, fantasy designed small sculpture. Hand carved with traditional hand tools, and polished with standard water base sand papers up to 2000 grit smoothness and shine. The stone has a hardness of 2, on a scale of 1-10, for this reason the base stone is a much harder locally collected black slate, that polished as well.
The carving is original, brand new, never been displayed. Sealed and buffed with natural non toxic bee wax. Signed and dated on the base.
