Stroll through the town of Grasse and you might come across white puffs of smoke and the grinding sound of tools slicing, cutting, edging and polishing stones. Between June 19 and July 5, 2007, nine artists carve big blocks of white Carrare marble, one block per artist. They carve, inspired by a theme at the heart of Grasse's heritage - flowers and fragrances.
It's Grasse's 2nd International Marble Sculpture Symposium from June 19 to July 5, 2007.
If you're more interested in seeing the end result of the sculpting, on July 6, the jury will review the sculptures amidst a little celebration. Grasse will get to keep the sculptures and exhibit them around the city.
