Despite already carving an eye out of beautiful white soapstone, I decided to expose the "birth" of the brain. I have begun to cut the shape out of a large black piece of Brazilian soapstone. This stone is pure beauty with it comes to finishing, and despite its "soft" carving properties, this particular stone is extremely strong and resilient. It will take a good chunk of time to come out with the outcome desired. The other side of this stone will be carved into the heart for the project. Looking forward to updating everyone with images.
