Pillars With Personality

“……everybody must get stoned…”

stonecornucopiaWe have visited a few Cathedrals, Duomos, Chapels.  After reading “The Pillars of the Earth” by K. Follet, the lives of those who tediously cut all the stone for decades (lifetimes) on end came alive for me. 

I have had fun looking for the fun they might have had expressing themselves, when block after block got too much. 

So how about inserting a family member or a self-portrait?  And then laughing, thinking about all the people to come who would wonder about the significance of that random block.  So you leave your mark and  then go  back to making the square ones.
