A baby bird alone, waiting for its mother to return and looking anxiously around.

This lovely sculpture combines Benjamin's elegant lines with a fascinating semi-precious type of stone called unachite. It is exceptionally hard and difficult to work, but its speckled pink on green colouration is really special.

Benjamin is already well-known, having been promoted by Chapungu Gallery for a number of years as has his younger brother Royal Katiyo.
