Stone mason doing delicate work on a leaf formation - SMC239

Colin Watson, the St Magnus Cathedral Stone Mason, is doing delicate work on the leaves of a finial. The original finial was blown off the Cathedral during a gale.

Colin is using a small round mallet and fine chisel to finish off the end of one of the leaves. It is difficult to position the stone so that he can strike it in the right place and at the right angle.

The completed finial is now mounted in place on the gable of the north transept chapel
