Really good stone masonry – Montenegro

April 11, 2013

 

Here’s an especially good example of a dry-laid stone wall, impeccably fit together and built generations ago… Unfortunately you don’t see this level of high-quality work being done around here today… its easy and fast to cheat with cement and stone veneer, which will never look this good or last this long.

Good stone masonry, montenegro

Here’s a previous post with some photos of beautiful stone walls on the island of Chios, Greece.

And a stone chimney and detail of a stone roof from Zagoria, Greece.

And this photo, which I took in Gabon, looks like a collapsed stone wall but is actually a natural formation.
