Sacred, indeed, Andrew.

How sure this man was of his craft, to cut such an elegant letter-form that would last for this long... & still move us?

Thanks everyone. I like the shallow depth of field which, paradoxically, adds to the sharpness, i think.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Nice choice of both lens and angle enhancing the depth and revealing the mastery of the mason and of the photographer, Andrew. I like this a lot!
