Those of you who visited us at the London Art Fair last week can't have failed to notice Chris Mitton's fantastic new sculpture, 'Fragile Peace.'

Chris hand carved a block of Italian Carrara marble into a 3:1 scale sculpture of the Colt 45 SAA revolver, commonly known as the 'Peacemaker.' It took him 6 months to finish the painstakingly detailed piece, working from a replica of the original gun. These images reveal something of his arduous process and give a wonderful insight into the artist's stone carving method, from stone block to finished sculpture.
