Stone is the primordial and most prevalent medium of the human race. It was the original material of habitation in caves and stone huts and the substance that gave shape to our greatest monuments and places of worship. Everyday-stone eventually gave way to the refinement and elegance of marble, and the ever-presence and durability of granite, but stone is stone and it has served humanity in all its quests including the artistic.
There are shapes and spirits in stone, there are gods and heroes and common folk and ideas and poetry in stone; it can be claimed that all that is dear and all that is feared in every aspect of the human experience begins in stone and can be expressed by variously manipulating it, carving it, shaping it, taming it, building with it, but never totally conquering it because it is more powerful and all-encompassing even than the infinite capacity of the human mind. Many of these are sculptures are from the island of KOS Museum. They are of the ancient Greek Gods and other famous persons of the time.. Hermes, Hippocrates, Artemis, Athena, Pan etc... This is a work in progress, so please do return to see how these images will change as my technique gets better.
