Information

This sculpture of a woman staring into an imaginary pool shows the process of carving in stone. The rock on which the figure sits displays the marks made by the metal chisel used to carve the sculpture from a single block of stone. This contrasts with the smooth surface of the naked woman. Clement has signed her sculpture by carving her initials into the rock
