"An evergreen plant - it's always green, no matter what the season. People like to see such a plant because it cheers them up, it always looks positive."

The 2008 National Arts Merit Awards winner for sculpture is on top form again this year. This is the tallest piece by Onias (or anyone else!) available this year, and it's tremendous, elegant and powerful, a real statement piece. It would make a perfect garden centrepiece, particularly given its floral theme.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. 'Green springstone' is black with a green tinge. It's impermeable and suitable for outdoor display, although we would suggest covering the piece during exceptionally cold weather for peace of mind as some parts of the sculpture are quite thin.
