Stone sculptor Mark Feeley, has completed many unique commissions over the years but being asked to sculpt a life-size Ewe and Lamb from a four and a half tonne block of Roscommon limestone is by far one of the most unusual requests he’s ever had.
This film is an intimate portrayal of Mark and his passion for his work as well as a record of the progress on this project which was commissioned in 2017 by Roscommon Lamb Festival on their 10th Anniversary.
Filmmaker Mike Hourigan, captures the essence of the Craftsman bringing this block of stone to life as limestone chips fly and the dust settles.
