Natural Memorial Stone

It’s always an honour to be asked to make a memorial for a loved one, and this was no exception. After searching and swimming in the seas around our country for a number of months, I eventually found this beautiful stone in the North Sea, off the coast of East Lothian (24 x 27 x 8 cm, 11 Kg).

Freehand carved, as always, in the Scottish Borders, and placed by the customer at Samye Ling.
