What Types of stones are used in carved sculptures?

Why not bring the romance of ancient Greece
to your home with one? Luckily for you, Experienced Sandstone Experts Brisbane Rock Sales can provide
high-quality Carved Sandstone Sculptures, Sandstone House Bricks and much more for your home at an
affordable rate. But did you ever wonder what types of stone is typically used for household sculptures?
Keep on reading to find out.


Marble has been used for thousands of years as a prime choice for fine art. Whether it be
Michelangelo’s iconic (to say the least) statue of David, to the Taj Mahal’s carved Stone Panels, it’s safe
to say that Marble exemplifies beauty and awe as few other materials can. It’s particularly popular for
showing the human form due to its slight translucence that gives the appearance of human flesh. It is
also versatile and resistant to wear.


Granite has a highly original aesthetic, baring no overall crystalline structure and has a typically varied
texture. Granite is used for formal sculptures whether for political or funerary statues but is also very
heavy and difficult to work with. As far as a Carved Sculpture for your garden, you’re better off going
with Sandstone.


In some ways like Marble, limestone is softer while easier to work with. Sturdy and able to handle sharp
blows without cracking, a limestone Carved Statue can be relied upon to stand the test of time.


Sandstone is by far the easiest material to work with for Carved Statues. You can rely on them to bring
your Carved Statue to life with finely detailed results, vivid finishes and a warm relaxing feel. It is by far
the most popular material to use for Carved Statues and whose earthy tones are both pleasing to the
eye and can fit in in any setting.
In conclusion, for a sure-fire way to owning a statue for your yard, porch or garden, choose a Sandstone
Carved Sculpture. Brick Rock Sales can provide you with the highest standard of sandstone carved
sculptures, handpicked for their quality, durability and sold at affordable rates.

    What Our Customer Says

    From the time I rang Brisbane Rock Sales to get some names for quotes to do this sandstone wall to completion, I could not have been happier with the whole process. The price came in as a reasonable amount of money after I had received quotes to get the wooden retaining wall replaced, the stones came in a lot cheaper. We couldn’t be happier with the end product and we were very impressed with the professionalism shown. Thank you for making the process less stressful and creating such a pleasing result.
