ATLANTA -- Dave Dechant of Cabbagetown is a stay-at-home dad and husband.
When the 43 year old with a degree in writing needed something to do as the kids went to school and his wife to work, Dave taught himself to sculpt.
This is not about clay and wood. Dechant purchased 30,000 lbs. of Georgia granite and has created, with his own hands, a 22-foot long shark with a man inside. The home project has taken him two years. The shark has now been paired down to 10,000 lbs.
Did we mention it sits in his front yard?
We received a call from his neighbor George Berry. The retired sculpting teacher from Kennesaw State University told us his neighbor is astonishing and has done something that needed to be seen.
