Every sculpture is made from natural stone and varies slightly due to the nature of the stone and natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stones will contain inclusions, pits, or fissures as a result of its geological formation. The natural recurring iron/seaweed strata lines in the stone give the stone its character and makes it unique.

Natural lines are colorful lines formed within the stone. These are not flaws, but rather signifies the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due to its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment.

NOTE: Typically your sculpture will ship within 2-3 days after you've placed your order.
