    First sculpture "Albert"

    First sculpture

    Fredrik bought a hammer and some chissels and walked into the mountains where Michelangelo once (500 years before him) searched for marble blocks for his future masterpieces. Legend says that the Master walked around in the mountains above Seravezza and, when he found a block he deemed worthy, he carved his “M” into it, so that his assistants could take it out and down to his workshop.

    Fredrik walked around for days looking at stones and mountain (all marble!) and legend has it that when he found his block, it allready had an “M” carved into it.

    Out of this rock Fredrik carved his firs sculpture; Albert.
