On My First Date
Her excitement (and nerves) are tangible, as she parades self-consciously in her new best dress, ready for her first proper date.
By leaving the face featureless, Stephen cleverly magnifies the elegance of the dress as it clings to her body and the drapes and folds.
Stephen is a new addition to Guruve's gallery this year. It takes a lot to impress us these days, but his stylish figures with their beautiful faces are really lovely. His very talented brother Rufaro has worked with Guruve for some years now, so please check out his sculptures too!
Springstone is the local Zimbabwean name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is hard with few natural flaws, and is suitable for outdoor display.
