"He wears flowers round his neck, waiting for the bride. When the bride arrives, he takes off the flowers and puts them over her neck."

This sculpture is a museum-quality example of Edward's work, in the hardest type of springstone. A larger piece like this used to stand proud at one of the entrances to the prestigious Chapungu Sculpture centre in Harare. This piece is a (slightly!) more practical size and is a true collector's gem. Character, strength, power, charm - it's got it all. Wonderful.

Springstone is frost-resistant and is suitable for display outdoors.
