Here is the rock sculpture by sculptor Lei Yi Xin (Right) with his interpreter (Left). He was invited from St. Paul's sister city, Changsha*, China. His sculpture is carved out of Dolomite limestone quarried in Southeastern Minnesota. To create this beautiful sculpture, he had to wear a special heavy-duty mask to avoid inhaling rock dust, which is composed of fine pieces of limestone, for many days; the rock dust is created by cutting limestone with his diamond cutter. We do like his stuff. The sculpture will soon be viewed at Phalen Park, St. Paul, MN. The pic was shot at St. Paul College, St. Paul, MN, on 060630.
