Stone carving inspiration

Three years ago I had a chance to see the iconic Moai statues on Easter Island.   This year we paid a visit to Machu Picchu to see how a different culture made use of their abundant stone.    I feel a kinship with both of these cultures because I understand how difficult it is to carve stone and shape it to your will.   But I will always stand in their shadow because they worked in such a large scale with very rudimentary tools compared to what’s available to me today.     Visiting these ancient sites puts me in awe of these very “old school” stone carvers and sculptors.
