A joyous piece from Norbert here, as he playfully throws a variety of contrasting textures together in a dancing figure, imbued with energetic movement. You feel that at any moment they could throw off the shackles of stone and start to dance!

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone.

It is a particularly good sculpture medium, as it has a very even internal structure of small grains of rock; it is dense and has very few flaws. It is the favoured medium for Zimbabwe's most famous sculptors.
