How wonderful to see a baby elephant being born out of the granite – keep going Ronnie – we are all cheering you on!

Thank you, thank you. This kind of support gives Ronnie the strength he needs to carve the granite. He sends love to you all.

Hey I missed this one!….it looks like the granite is returning what Ronald needs, there’s power behind those blows, people do not realise how much energy is required when stone carving on a monolithic scale.

Only another sculptor, like yourself, knows what strength is required to carve granite. However the strength does not come from him alone. He is well aware of that.
