Locally collected natural marble specimen, light gray base color with black and some yellow veins and lines. Self prospected stone from Kennedy hill on Vancouver island British Columbia. Just like any other marbles, it’s an excellent carving medium, allows to work out details without breaking or chipping. The gray wolf chiseled from a decent size rock, what just came to surface a few hours ago when we passed by, thanks for the road construction, that blasted part of the hill away.
size: 7.25″ x 6.75″ x 3.75″, or 18 x 17 x 9.5 cm, weights 3.398 kg.
We believe in traditional stone carving, the old school way, by using minimal power tools. Polishing marble is a long and tiring process by hand. Makes me wonder how long it took for Michelangelo to polish the Pieta. On this gray wolf sculpture decided to leave it just coarse, to show the marble itself, and because it allows to carve tiny lines, the fur of the wolf imitated with fine chisel work.
The sitting and howling position, the character of the wolf, so it’s designed according to that.
It’s a nice solid piece of natural stone, no additives or harmful materials used during the cutting and carving process. Not coated or sealed, just the stone as is. Easy to clean and maintain it, running water should wash the dust away, but it can take a medium hard brushing as well.
Another marble sculpture available in the shop, carved from the same stone, to see how the it looks when polished.
I have more raw stone in stock. If you like this specimen, I can carve a custom piece, of any design or idea.
