Moving Stones


Moving Stone

The Stone Workers – Colour Woodcut on Paper

I love this image by Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt (1878-1955) painter, etcher and printmaker, of men moving stone.

I’ve done this so many times – look, the old man there has a bar to lever the stone free and dislodge it, so his companion can get a hold.  It is a beautiful print, showing all the effort and serious work involved in manoevering stone to where you want it to be.

There have been times when I could have done with these three around the workshop!
