The figure sits on his haunches, with arms wrapped around his knees. A comfortable seated position when a long wait or a rest is on the cards!

Newman's pared down figurative sculptures are immensely powerful and understated.

Lepidolite is a mineral of the mica group, containing lithium. For the geologists among you, find out more here. This stone came from Bikita, one of two sources in Zimbabwe.
