An elegant stylised abstract torso.

Nesbert makes a welcome return to our collection this year after a few years off. In that time, his art has developed in a very interesting abstract direction, and these new pieces, with their utter simplicity and clean lines, are very exciting. Lovely!

'Lemon Opal Stone' is the local Zimbabwean name for a translucent pale green serpentine stone. It is of a similar hardness to springstone (i.e. a lot harder than what is known as common opal stone, which scratches easily like soapstone). It does NOT contain opals, sorry!
