Hand carved memorial to Robin Gibb by Martin Cook

 

This week marks the finish of a project that I am very proud to have been commissioned to make.  The hand carved memorial to Robin Gibb.

The brief was to create a hand carved memorial that had a Celtic feel and celebrated the life of one of the most successful singer/songwriters of the last 50 years.

The hand carved memorial is made from Kilkenny limestone.  The front of the memorial has a keystone with a hand carved image of Saint Cecilia, the patron Saint of music.  The front of the memorial has relief carved roses and hand carved lettering.  The back of the memorial has relief carved ribbons with hand carved lettering of songs  Robin Gibb wrote.
