This stunning sculpture represents a climbing plant, growing upwards and twisting around; its flower is the small circle on the right.

Ishmael has chosen to sand and wax the entirety of this sculpture so we can enjoy the wonderful colours and textures within the stone.

'Fruit serpentine' is the local Zimbabwean name for a very colourful, slightly translucent variety of serpentine stone. It comes from Kwekwe and is of a similar hardness to the black serpentine known as springstone.
