"The first meeting between a girl and a boy - that leads to great things!"

With a few deft lines, Nesbert captures the moment when a young couple size each other up, while keeping a respectable distance between them.

So simple but powerful, Nesbert is one of the best contemporary Zimbabwean sculptors and his work holds its own on an international stage.

Springstone is the local Zimbabwean name for a very hard variety of serpentine stone. Springstone is an excellent sculpture medium as it has a dense, even internal structure of small grains of rock and very few flaws. All the colouration in the stone is entirely natural.
