Story Behind the Art:
Guatemala's Hector Medrano says, 'When I was 14, I met a person who worked sculpting marble. I started to work with him and I liked it. When I was 16, I started working on my own. The first pieces I sculpted were from the Maya culture. I'm passionate about my work.I'm sure that this is the gift God gave me: the ability to imagine, design and carve marble sculptures.'
