Gosford Quarries was honoured to present a life-like Sandstone Bust to the 77th Patriarch of Antioch and All the East Mar Bechara Boutros Cardinal Rai on Friday 7th November 2014. This was a gift from the Sarkis Family on Behalf of the Australian Maronite Bishop of Australia Antoine-Charbel Tarabay.

Charlie Sarkis (Gosford Quarries' National Sales Manager) had the great opportunity to take a digital scan of His Beatitude the Patriarch on Monday 3/11/14. With the help of Gosford Quarries' most sophisticated CNC Profiling machinery and the tireless efforts of amazing banker masons and specialised profiling team, this  detailed sandstone bust was produced in an incredible 3days!

It was ready for presentation to His Eminence on Friday 7/11/14 at the Inaugural AMPC's (Australian Maronite Professionals Council) private luncheon held at the beautiful Oatlands House. 

His Eminence Mar Bechara Boutros Cardinal Rai was delighted at the presentation and commended the workmanship, skill and efficiency of those involved.
