Photo detail

The new fountain statue, to be an exact replica of the old, will be sculpted in using the same "point" technique as the original. The sandstone block is roughed out to a general shape and then points are drilled to exact depths so the sculptor(s) knows when to stop. Original drill points can be seen in areas of the current statue.
