"Men and women have been created by God as partners together forever, as partners to have kids. Under this sun, women and men are supposed to stay together for life."

'Fruit serpentine' is the local Zimbabwean name for this very colourful, slightly translucent type of serpentine stone. The white finish of their hair has been created by carving lines freehand using a punch; the white skirt has been created by lightly rasping the surface of the stone.
