The art of stonemasonry has existed for centuries – ever since humans started making and using tools to survive. From those seemingly ‘menial’ tools, to some of the world’s most iconic buildings, stonemasonry has evolved over the years to produce many architectural wonders! The Eqyptian Pyramids, Stonehenge, famous temples in Asia like Angkor Wat and Borobudur, Acropolis in Greece and the Parthenon are just a few examples. This practice has, and is allowing artisan craftspeople across the world to leave a beautiful legacy – appreciated for years to come.
