I came across this Sculpture Symposium recently.
All the pieces exhibited had been crafted on site...
By sculptors from all round New Zealand.
Some smaller pieces were quickly made, a collection making that particular display.
Others took 10 days of loving, careful chipping, shaping and polishing.
They were judged then auctioned.
These two were my favourites...
The black face made from Basalt stone & beautifully polished, sold for $5,000.
The white one is made from Oamaru stone.
It was a pleasure to look at them and absorb their beauty.
