Limestone Sculptures - Hand carved by local artist Local artist John Terrio
Due to the high quality nature of our Limestone it has also been used by a local artist, John Terrio to create one-of-a-kind polished sculptures.
Carving stone into sculpture is an activity older than civilization itself. Prehistoric sculptures were usually human forms, such as the Venus of Willendorf and the faceless statues of the Cycladic cultures of ancient Greece. Later cultures devised animal, human-animal and abstract forms in stone. The earliest cultures used abrasive techniques, and modern technology employs pneumatic hammers and other devices. But for most of human history, sculptors used hammer and chisel as the basic tools for carving stone.
