And in fact, it was in 1926 this sculptor developed a method of direct carving into setting concrete, which meant that a lot of his work after this was integrated into architecture with numerous commissions, however, later in his career Charles Sarrabozelles also produced numerous busts and monuments, prior to passing away in February 1971.
