A person who is at one with nature, who is happiest surrounded by plants and animals.

Edward's father was a herbalist, a medicine man. He was thinking about his father when he began working on this piece.

Edward is in his late eighties now, and the remote area of northern Zimbabwe where his Korekore people hail from must have been a very different place when his father learned his herbology.

This sculpture is in the hardest type of springstone and is suitable for outdoor display.
