"These two girls have been friends all through childhood. Now the front one is getting married and must go and live with her husband's family, so they have to part and they are saying goodbye."

Boet's gift is to be able to take inspiration from traditional African society and express Shona customs in a fresh and exciting manner, coupled with such beautiful and intricate patterning.

Boet Nyariri is only the second artist ever to be awarded the accolade Best Sculptor twice in Zimbabwe's prestigious National Arts Merit Awards competition.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is suitable for outdoor display.
