It’s a brand new, never been displayed original carving direct by the carver. The medium is Brazilian origin green base color soapstone, from certified supplier. Due to the nature of the stone it has some brown cloud like color inclusion as well.
Traditionally carved to minimalist style, means it’s detailed within the limits what soapstone allows. Shaped with mallet and chisel, detailed with rasps and files, polished with standard water base sand papers, to a smooth and satin shine. Sealed and buffed with natural non toxic bee wax. Signed and dated.
Soapstone doesn’t need much maintenance ones displayed, however by picking up room temperature attracts tiny dust particles, what can fade the shine by time. A few drops of olive oil and a soft cloth buff every other months recommended, that keeps the stone fresh and new looking.
