Anguillian Stone Work

Posted by: frank in News Add comments

Although I titled this post “stone work”, I could have easily called it “stone art”.  My neighbour is building a landscaping feature in his yard, and I’ve had the oppotunity (as have Lucy, Lola and Luther) to watch this beautiful artwork take shape.  The raw material is actually just the boulders of Anguilla limestone, lying around just about everywhere on Island.  Artisans like Dennis, pictured,  cut these stones with special saws, then assemble the veneers, as it were.  You can see some of this work “facing” a few buildings around the Island, but this is the first time I’ve been able to watch the creation take shape.
