A characteristically quirky interpretation of a warthog by one of Shona sculpture's best-loved sculptors, the Zambian artist Fanizani Akuda.

This warthog is just like the real thing - endearing if not pretty - and the sculpture is lovely to touch: the surface undulates with the effect of sanding by hand.

Springstone is the local Zimbabwean name for a particularly hard type of serpentine stone. It is black when polished.
