Well to help you understand better I bedn working as stone carving for over 28 years...

 Through this period of time  I worked on many projects in the USA like in the St Jonh the Divine Cathedral in NY.   In projects like the Jewish  Museum NY.  Where I carved many pieces of the new addition of the building. Also in the project of the Carnegie  Mellon in Pittsburgh , this project was a long process of hard work. We were a group of five carvers from a different part of the world like England, France, Canada, Colombia, we carved five different niches in different Architecture style like Roman Style using images from the Parthenon, another niche was Gothic style…

I worked on many more projects for the last 28 years using many types of stone like Marble, Limestone, Sandstone, Alabaster, Granite.      True all those years I learn all the best Methods that you need to know to start carving in stone...
