He may cut a fine figure (8)
I believe the answer is:
This might be a double definition.
'he may cut' is the first definition.
The answer is a person as well as being a singular noun. This is suggested by the definition.
'a fine figure' is the second definition.
The definition and answer can be both people as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe you can see a link between them that I can't see?
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for sculptor that I've seen before include "Does this artist lop crust off?" , "Maker of figures" , "Figure maker" , "Stone-carving artist" , "Epstein,say," .)
