Technically, this style of sculpting is extremely difficult to do because the springstone is very hard, and great skill is needed to avoid breakages when removing the inner stone with a punch. Peter's sculptures are each created from a single solid raw stone - he rejects any piece that cracks during sculpting.

This is a real 360° sculpture and the limited number of photographs make it hard to do it justice. More photos are available on request.
