We occasionally find zoomorphic shapes in some stone scraps. And so, in harmony with what stone and shape inspire, we decide how it should be worked.

In this case it is done with a milling cutter, slow and alternating: removing small amounts of material, transforming the broken rock into a decorative element or a fruit tray. Then we refine the element with a satin finish. Some will see in it the skin of a rhinoceros, an elephant, or a crocodile.
