An angel bringing the message down to earth.

Looking at the front, the circular space is the head of the angel, and the loop underneath is their wing. From above, the hole in the top of the sculpture is the voice of God, a column coming down from the sky.

There is a very pleasing swirling movement to this interesting abstract sculpture by one of our best young sculptors.

Tanyanyiwa won the Bernard Matemera Foundation 'Artist Of The Year' prize in 2009.

This amazing multi-coloured stone is a rediscovered variety of serpentine stone. All the colouration in the stone is entirely natural.
