This is a local piece that we are featuring that really is just a gorgeous stone carving.
These type stone carvings are typically done out of a single piece of stone and can be used indoor or outdoor. They are extremely strong and durable which will make for a long lasting piece. They tend to wear over time changing the color as they age.
If you haven’t been to an art festival this year, do yourself a favor and get out and make it happen. It is a wonderful sight on your eyes to see such amazing creations and they usually have fantastic food prepared to enjoy a great day out and about. Take care everyone!
