A baboon sitting quietly, holding its tail in its hand.

Sylvester grew up in rural Zimbabwe and venerates all the wild animals. The baboon, which is very intelligent and strong, is one of Sylvester's favourite topics.

This is substantial investment piece by the greatest living Zimbabwean sculptor.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is the favoured medium for Zimbabwe's most famous sculptors.
