The upwards movement reflects any person who is naturally joyous - they can't disguise the happiness in their movements. The circular movement within the sculpture suggests someone who might break into a dance at any moment!

This is a stunning abstract sculpture from Munyaradzi Jeche, with his typical minimalist lines and perfect finishing, but it's made all the more special by the fact that it has been sculpted from fruit serpentine, the local name for this very colourful and eye-catching variety of serpentine stone. The sparkles in the stone come from crystals of mica and iron pyrite.
