Head, Hand and Tool. Lee Grandjean, 1983
This sculpture of a stonemason celebrates the three
essential elements in all creativity, whether in the
studio or in the factory. The face is that of a
fellow-sculptor, and the hand grips a mason’s chisel.
The work relates to tradition of stone-carving
which has flourished in Britain since the early Middle Ages.
