Sometimes a village will provide me with a mountain of historical information. Sometimes I use an archaeologist to research the more tricky stuff. I will then sift through it, and find the material that will lend itself to interpretation in relief carving. I will play with the various elements until they blend in a satisfactory way, that will compromise neither the historical substance, nor the visual effect. Sometimes this can be a bit of a balancing act.
