According to [José Manuel Castro López], stone and its properties are often mythologized in Galician culture. Inspired by this, he finds that his work is more impacted by magic than technique: “It is not the sculptor who acts, but the wizard, the druid,” he tells The Creators Project, “My relationship with the stone is not physical, but magical. It recognizes me, it obeys me…we understand each other. My stones are not lifeless. They manifest themselves.” (Vice) Stones Carved to Appear Like Wrinkled Fabrics by José Manuel Castro López (This Is Colossal). See also: Imgur gallery.
