In stone, tap tap tapping away.

2+ days were taken designing Roman Italic lower case lettering through pen calligraphy then drawing, repetition of making letter forms is essential, hand / eye coordination becomes natural and fluid. Carving them in stone is another set of disciplines also mastered through repetition and a good tutor.
