The following flying buttress statue suggested a feline beast, I suspect a cougar. I tried to make it a bit clearer that it was supposed to be a cat, but then it looked more like a dog. The next day it all went a lot better, so it looks a bit more feline now. Only the ears don't fit at all. But as they were the same in the original, I left it at that.
Each flying buttress statue sits on a continuous profile, so I need to carve that profile in stone as well. It is always a chore to carve everything crisp and straight and lay the chisel mark finish.
In de onderstaande video zie je me hakken aan Old Lady with Mortar and Pestle, (it was meant for Instagram, that's why it sadly turned out upright).
