* Do you ever look up and see strange creatures clinging to the sides of buildings? Do you wonder how they get there?

These thumbnails are smaller than 11k, and clicking on them will display a picture that is under 60k; so I hope you'll take a few minutes to view them and to enjoy the way I bend and shape this suprisingly fluid material.
*So, come inside and learn how stone is quarried and carved, find out about the tools, techniques and traditions of carving, and see the incredible varieties of marble available.
