"A basketball player high in attacking motion to score."

The central loop is their head, arms outstretched above it, and top loop is the ball going into the net as they score.

Using basketball as a metaphor for life, the player strives to reach great heights using their talent and ability.

This is a fantastic large sculpture, great for a garden centrepiece, with interest from every angle (more photos are available on request). As with all our sculptures, this piece has been carved by hand from a single piece of raw stone.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is suitable for outdoor display, as it is dense and impermeable and has very few flaws that might be exacerbated by frost action.
