The concept of the mother and child, her larger body is looped around the small loop of the baby.

Tonderai has established a reputation for astonishingly delicate and intricate work that is also very clean and simple. This is a fantastic medium-sized sculpture, great for a central interior position, with interest from every angle (more photos are available on request).

Springstone is the local name for a hard type of serpentine stone. It has a dense, even internal structure of small grains of rock with very few flaws, and is the perfect medium for Tonderai's technically challenging style.
