Faces In Stone …

These beautiful stone sculptures were done by a Native American from Aquinnah whose name unfortunately I’ve forgotten. I asked him how he knows what to sculpt and he told me that he has to get to know the stone first… let it speak to him and tell him what it is meant to be…  only then does he begin the process of letting the spirit emerge from the stone.

This particular stone is double-ended.

I particularly like this one below.  I like the way the face looks peaceful and wise.

Something I find interesting about these sculptures is that when you’re holding them they’re both cool and warm. Perhaps it’s the spirit from within.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
