| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Workmen are represented polishing and painting statues of men, sphinxes, and small figures; and two instances occur of large granite colossi, surrounded with scaffolding, on which men are engaged in polishing and chiselling the stone, the painter following the sculptor to color the hieroglypics which he has engraved on the back of the statue.” — Goodrich, 1844
