A mixed bag of weather presented us with different challenges, still, we battled on and worked on the finer details of the flows. Towards the end of the week, we reached a stage where Raphael could start with the first stage of grinding. The sculpture will be honed, to get a silky surface. This is not easy to achieve, as one has to go through many levels of grinding stages to get to the finished surface.
By now, I can really feel the sculpture coming to life.
