Can a rock be transformed into something beautiful?

Japanese artist Hirotoshi Ito designs sculptures resembling a velvet-built coin purse by carving the stones, he transforms the stones to a sculpture that looks like sliced with a knife or a zippered mouth opening with flowers. Ito, who also designs tombstones, monuments and sculptures, sells his products at Ito Stone Shop. Check out his Facebook to see more.
