The horse rears up as if it is dancing.

An impressive piece by one of the last living first-generation artists from Zimbabwe's shona sculpture movement.

Ephraim has signed it on the base.

This green and golden brown stone is a hard variety of serpentine. All the colouration and lines in the stone are entirely natural.
