Oamaru stone – Janus

DSCN0111 DSCN0110 DSCN0109

My first stone sculpture. I enjoy working with Oamaru (lime) stone. Any (hand or power) tool in the shed will do – and then it sands up nicely and/or groove chisels to finish. Here I wanted angles and a cubist feel, rather than smooth and round as seems usual. This particular stone has a reddish tinge in the upper face. The main face ended up African in flavour which surprised me a bit – originally the rear was hair but then became Polynesian just because. Approx 60cm high.
