"In this world, there are beautiful women - without beautiful women, this world would be boring. The beautiful queens are there to remind everyone that we must cherish women with their beauty."

This marvellous sculpture by Jetro is one of this year's highlights - she's just stunning. The lady's face is particularly delicately sculpted. Nice work, Jetro!

Fruit serpentine is the local Zimbabwean name for a very colourful, slightly translucent type of serpentine stone. It comes from Kwekwe and is of a similar hardness to the black serpentine known as springstone. All the colour is natural, brought out by the polished clear wax coating.
