Ted Ludwiczak began carving stone in the late 1980s after retiring. The self taught artist came to carving stone heads while building a stone retaining wall near his house. Seeing a face in a rock he took a hammer and an old lawn mower blade and defined the form. Pleased with the results he felt, one head would look lonely, so he carved other stones heads in the wall.Hundreds of stone heads now make up the environment he refers his Easter Island set on a hillside.
