Handcarved headstones are no doubt the best choice available, all in various types of stone the hand carving adds a certain personal element to the memorial/monument. Personally stonework created using only machines doesnt have the same level of creativlty in my opinion.

I certainly like these sketches. At first glances they might look basic, but upon further inspection you can see what detail and skill goes into making them appear so simple and yet so very attractive to the eye.

Here in Funchal, the capital city of Madeira, we have the Museum of Contemporary Art in the Fortaleza de São Tiago which stands on the coast at the eastern, Old Town edge, of Funchal. Some of the work that has been exhibited here reflects a similar approach as that used to create these sketches. It is a style that I much appreciate. Thanks for sharing them with us.
