Since each stone is made as a one-off, the look of the painting or the shape and size of the stone can vary slightly.
The stones are sealed for indoor and outdoor use, but please still look for a protected place where no water or rain gets on it.

And now the story of this Stone:
Life doesn't. has never been easy. Perhaps you are passing. you too have a bad time. If you want to go on reading, I'll tell you briefly how I managed to go through very bad times.
When I was 3 my parents separated and from that day life gave me this feeling of having to choose between one person or another, between one decision or another. In short, I was always in the middle of two extremes, and I felt divided in two.
Throughout my life up until a few years ago I have lived drifting from right to left, looking for a way to feel good in between.
I've made thousands of mistakes and I still make many, because I desperately invested so much in looking outside myself for an emotional stability that I never achieved.
When things go wrong, I often find myself in this feeling I had as a child: I feel locked in a closed, trapped tunnel, where going out means being stronger than things stronger than me.
In 2013 I had one of the hardest moments, I lost everything, girlfriend, dog, home, car, love, security, and I fell into a depression. Penniless, barely able to pay rent with internet marketing and coaching jobs I no longer had the energy for, I slept on the floor on my clothes and was certain that nothing could help me anymore. I didn't want to live anymore and I refrained from making an extreme gesture because in any case I gave birth to two daughters. And because, despite all the difficulties experienced as a child with my parents, I have always felt loved by them.
One of these desperate evenings I almost accidentally heard Echhard Tolle on Youtube and fell asleep. He struck me that sentence where he said
'I can't go on living with myself'. This thought spun endlessly in my mind. I suddenly realized what a strange thought it was. 'Is it one or two? If I can't live with myself, then there must be two mes: the 'I' and the 'I' that 'I' can no longer live with." "Maybe," I thought, "it's only one of the two really .'"
[Eckhart Tolle: Now!]
When I woke up in the morning, still with my eyes closed, I knew that there was something different than usual.
I felt strangely light and my head felt like it was empty. I had an image in my head. The image of a tunnel, my past, and a great light that came from the exit of the tunnel.
When I opened my eyes, I noticed that the light was coming from the window.
I couldn't believe it and started. acry for joy.
A huge relief. Nothing had changed!
It was always me, poor, without a future, with nothing on my knees in front of this light, but this light passed through me like a laser and I felt the need to get up and say thank you.
I realized the tunnel was only in my head. And that I had a chance to get out of it. I didn't have to wait for someone to help me or for someone to change their ways.
This image of me coming out of the tunnel looked like this stone that I painted by letting myself be inspired by a photo on the internet.
Every time I feel bad, when things go wrong, I tell myself: there is a feeling in me that tells me a story, a story that is certainly not invented, but it is only a version of reality, it is an interpretation.
We could say a negative interpretation. On the other hand, there is a part in me that always tries to see everything positive, but this too is only an interpretation.
There is something more important in life than always seeing things in such a divided and extreme way. There are nuances.
Nuances are important. We are ready to judge everyone and we allow ourselves to judge those who think or act differently from us.
But if I breathe deeply and let go of these extremes,. I go back to that pleasant dimension that should have been given more space as a child, the dimension of looking. I looked at my father and loved him for who he was. And the same with my mother. I liked their nuances and not the black and white versions that had been proposed to me.
In their shades there were many colors, much life and much more than just an enemy of the enemy.
I thank life every time I manage to return to the dimension of who listens, observes, and then takes the choice of light, and this is what I feel every time I repaint this character who comes out of the tunnel.
