This is an older piece (around 10 yrs). All hand tools only, no grinders or pneumatic carvers. What took me a couple weeks (on-and-off) I can punch out in a day with the Trow & Holden carver.
Limestone head (approx. 50 lbs)
Playing around with some limestone blocks that were left over from some construction. I'm using an angle grinder and a 1/2" Trow & Holden Type-B pneumatic stone carver. Lots of fun though my hands ache and the angle grinder might be overheating.
First unfinished piece (around 35 lbs)
Rough out of the second (about 25 lbs)
A little more work on the second, mainly with the angle grinder
