Face Carved In Stone








This Quincy style jack-o-lantern was carved from a 6,000 pound block of granite by local artist, Ed Monti. The 83-year-old granite sculptor surprised the city by placing this grinning piece onto city hall plaza for all to enjoy . . . and the best part is . . . it won't rot. Happy Halloween!

That's great! I love it. We have a stone carver whose studio is just down the road. Maybe I could persuade him to make something similar for our pumpkin fest!

Great find. Love it.

Ciao,
