This is a photo of me using a ‘point’ to carve out large quantities of marble from a block to create a portrait. I’m using a mallet to hit the point – I’ve always preferred one to a hammer, less noisy. I can cut lines along the surface of the stone and smash off big lumps as I go. Its noisy and dusty work!
