Stone carving

My landlord owns a landscaping business, and keeps leftover stone from his projects at the end of the driveway.  I decided to grab a chunk and experiment with a bas relief sculpture.  I think this is slate;  it carved easily with a chisel and  X-acto knife, and I used sandpaper to smooth the surface a little.  The iris and pupil were carved with a Dremel tool.
