Photo of the day – Alabaster craftsman

Theodore Scott captured this image of an alabaster craftsman in Volterra, Italy. I love how the entire workspace calls alabaster to mind. Beyond the shelf and work space, both heaving with alabaster, there are the luminous windows and the craftsman’s silver-white helmet of hair. I began to wonder: Do other craftspeople begin to look like their materials at some point in their careers?
