Three Faces Standing Stone as the name may suggest comprises of three different surfaces each the product of a different means of production.

Firstly we have the smooth plain side whereby the grain of the stone dominates both the look and feel of the sculpture’s dominant face, and was created using a slew of diamond blade and spinner pad technology – all held and carved by hand of course. Well, of course! And oh how lovely and smooth it looks and feels by the way, and such a lovely colors too.

Then we have what was once the actual natural surface of the stone, and this being limestone from Kansas, the face that you are looking at and hopefully touching, is actually the top of the limestone seam whereby soil and debris would have at one time rested on the surface which is now of course vertically inclined.

This explains why so many tiny sea creatures may be seen in fossilized form wriggling around as if they are not millions of years old – if you look closely that is. Otherwise you will see and encounter much in the way of former Earth life forming beds of calcite deposits left behind by this and that form of life. It’s all pretty fascinating once you notice them.

Then finally we have the side that I drilled and split using plug and feather wedges to split this piece from another far larger piece – a fountain installation in fact called Partners in Time  linkThe entire surface of this smaller face was created the instant my hammer drove down on one of the wedges and just like that, in an instantaneous moment, the stone split in two, and what remained on the Three Faces side is the third face in its entirety.

But perhaps the best part of owning Three Faces Standing Stone will not be the spectacular input that he lends to practically any gorgeous setting, but the interaction with nature that transpires virtually all the time, whether it be in the form of the numerous wild birds taking the opportunity to rest and look around, or the larger animals in the form of foxes, deer, elk and even bear who gratefully scratch their itches on the lovely sharp angled corners from time to time. Simply sprinkle bird seeds on top and in the holes if you wish, then sit back and watch the wild life show. And if they make too much of a mess at any particular point just take a hose and blast Three Faces clean.

And lastly, if you know anything about my work, like all of my Standing Stones, Three Faces swivels upon a one in hole drilled into the underside of her base allowing all three faces to be viewed at any and all times.
