    Most of the buildings in Malta are built of Sand Stone, it is said that Malta is turning itself inside-out. (Not lime Stone).

    Yes, that looks more like sandstone. We have lots of limestone in Western New York, and it doesn't cut or chisel that easily! I visited many quarries in my mine of work.

    The sculptor is Charlie Gee. He mostly does architectural pieces and restorations. I assume that he has other socials, but I've only watched his videos on Instagram.
