"The bending leaves of that flower form eye-like holes that give the impression of an owl."

This graceful piece is typical of Itayi's favourite style, with flowing lines and smooth surfaces working in harmony; it feels simple and uncluttered.

This dark brown variety of serpentine stone comes from Tengenenge in northern Zimbabwe.
