I finished these about 2 weeks ago. Set them on the deck rail for a few days. I had penciled in the eye, decided to put them back on the bench to drill the eye, sha-zam, all three are broken, bases snapped right off. Having made them so narrow the hammering had set up fractures, a few days in the weather let the stone change in its internal humidity and it got brittle. I tossed the bases, considering mounting them on new bases, maybe something very slick and angular and geometric. I don't know. Life is so hard. Click on the picture and it gets quit large.
