Stone Mountain Carver Dies at Age 84: Roy Faulkner

From the AL.com, Alabama  "Roy Faulkner, who finished the Stone Mountain Confederate carvings, dies at 84.

This would be the famous huge carvings of Confederates Lee, Jackson and Davis on the side of Georgia's Stone Mountain, near Atlanta.

He was a welder by trade and was initially hired at Stone Mountain to build an elevator to help workers move up and down it to accomplish their work.  Later, he took over as chief carver and it was the only piece of artwork he ever did, even though he was not a trained sculptor artist.
