Someone holding on to their ear, listening attentively.

The loop is their ear and the short upright shows their arm coming up and the hand cupping the ear.

Tonderai has restrained himself with this piece, and has kept the form relatively simple - to great effect.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. The pale green lines you can see in the photos are veins in the stone. The surface of the sculpture has been coated with clear wax to enhance the natural colours within the stone.
