The little elephant raises its trunk in greeting.

This quirky, almost cartoonish representation of a elephant is typical of Ephraim's work. He is one of the last living first-generation artists from Zimbabwe's shona sculpture movement.

Ephraim has signed it on the base.

This colourful deep red stone is a variety of serpentine. All the colouration and lines in the stone are entirely natural.
