Hello Jon

At the 1:36 min mark...can you imagine how long this would take with a hammer/chisel? - and better not make a mistake and chip something off which shouldn't have been chipped (result in quick trip to the gallows or worse I would imagine.

The genius of coming up with the idea and then implementing the project to result in what we see there. Makes my head spin. I don't know whether this site has been examined for machine marks or not but the sculpting is incredible.
