She is young and beautiful, with elegant features. She has had a special hairstyle done for her trip to the photographer.

Rufaro's confidence with the chisel shines through in her beautiful face with its sharply defined eyes, nose and lips. He has used a very narrow tungsten carbide-tipped chisel to create the detail of her hair; the shiny areas have been sanded smooth, heated and clear wax applied and polished.

Fruit serpentine is the local Zimbabwean name for a very colourful and slightly translucent variety of serpentine stone.
