Wow! That is a good sized rock. Is she sculpting it on site or his she working in a studio? do you know what kind of stone that is? I wonder if it will be stacked or carved as one piece. it would be cool if you could occasionally post some more pictures of her progress. interesting post, thanks jordan..

Oxeye,
I overheard that it was around 750Lbs. Four folks from the Priory moved it with the aid of some friends and a hydraulic dolly.
The stone is some sort of marble, starts with a “P” I think. I understand that it will be stacked and pinned together.
I hope to get the opportunity to help out some more and if I do I will try to bring along my camera again.

Why “skinned cat?”

J - It refers to the old saying.. “there is more than one way to skin a cat.”
