This stone used in this carving is amber – shaped to a convex top with a flat bottom, called a cabochon. After the mask was carved, I made space for the stone with a Dremel tool and used a little clear acrylic glue to hold it in place.
Amber is frequently considered a symbol of wisdom, so I like the symbolism, but also it has a wonderful light-catching quality that I love.
Thank you for looking.
