This piece is all about finding strength in flexibility - represented by a plant like palms which can bend in the wind but the base is unaffected. So this is a person who can take the knocks of life and bounce back, holding true to their beliefs.

This is a lovely small sculpture by one of the most exciting artists working in Zimbabwe today. At Guruve, we strongly believe that buyers of smaller artworks should not have to compromise on quality. No roadside soapstone hippos or dancing families here!

All the colouration in this amazing serpentine stone is entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.
