A quintessential Sylvester sculpture. If you look at his biography photo, you'll see that it looks remarkably like a self-portrait!

Fruit serpentine is the local Zimbabwean name for a very colourful, slightly translucent type of serpentine stone. It comes from Kwekwe and is of a similar hardness to the black serpentine known as springstone.
