A delightful sculpture reminding us that it is common in the bird kingdom for pairs to form lifelong partnerships, and they perform graceful dances together to reinforce their relationship.

Peter has wisely chosen to keep the finishing of this lovely piece as simple as possible, so that the viewer contemplates the beauty of the whole work rather than being distracted by contrasting textures.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It has a very even internal structure of small grains of rock; it is dense and has very few flaws, and is perfect for Peter's precise work.
