Martin loved this particular Welsh slate standing stone so much that he offered to compensate the client so he could keep it himself.  Understandably the sensible client refused his offer.  It really is a beautiful piece of work with a formal latin verse on one face and on the reverse a verse in English, hand carved, and deep relief hand carved flowers and gilded corn.
