Head raised, the bird scans the skies for signs of predators, always vigilant.

The real star of the show here is the stone itself, and Peter has wisely kept his work simple to allow full appreciation of the beauty of the material.

Cobalt stone is the local Zimbabwean name given to this type of serpentine, which is typically a mixture of purple and green, although this piece has wonderful swirls of red. It does not, as far as we know, contain any cobalt.
