A formidable figure, his solid body standing firm with his strong arms crossed over his chest.

Clean, simple lines and compact form make this a very pleasing sculpture and a super example of Tanyanyiwa's work, one of our top young sculptors.

Cobalt stone is the local Zimbabwean name given to this predominantly purple type of serpentine. It is mined near Chiweshe, in northern Zimbabwe.
