some great links.

They're of the magnificently sculpted

works from the

That is amazing. Da Vinci’s “Last Supper” was carved into the altar of a church in St. Louis where I was a student pastor. But that was wood. I can’t imagine sculpting salt!

Good to hear from you:)

It is amazing - I'd be happy if I could sculpt something recognizable out of clay, but it's not happening...

Will be by later today - I haven't seen Monday's jokes yet...
