The Stone Sculptor
Jason P. Nelson
Seahorse Number Two
Jordan Nelson fishing on the dock in Richards Landing, Ontario.
Marble and Garnet on an Agate/Quartz base
6x4x3,  2008

Artist's notes:  I chose to carve the Seahorse, because I think that they are fascinating creatures. Their prehensile tails
allow for some interesting spirals.  This sculpture is carved from Ruby Lake Marble (the quarry is located near Thunder
Bay), and the eyes are made of Garnet, the birthstone for January.  The base is a specimen from the Thunder Bay Agate
Mine.
