Funeral cross

Funeral cross made of Pierre Bleue du Bocq blue limestone as part of the restoration of a family vault.

A large part of the work, which was done by hand, calls for know-how and a special sensitivity that comes with long years of experience.  The rough-hewing and initial dressing of the stone is done by machine and by hand.  The tracing on the stone is done by following a jig.  The rest of the work is done exclusively by hand.  The craftsman begins finishing the stone, line by line, to give birth to a unique work of art.
