Leandro is more than a carver of skulls; he is an artist as well. In his own words: “My interest in and appreciation of art began during my childhood. When I was a boy, my family was poor so, I began to make my own toys from wood and clay. Stones were already of interest to me and throughout my teenage years this interest grew daily. I am still fascinated by stones, but even more fascinated by the energy the stones give me and my sculptures. I do not choose what will become of a stone; the stone itself moves me to create the form that it wishes to exist in. I love art, stones, the people who work with me, and I love knowing that people truly appreciate the sculptures that have been created by my hands”.
