The piece represents a twisted kudu horn.
"People blow through the horn as part of traditional celebrations, especially harvest time, and we brew beer and dance."

Even though most up-and-coming sculptors live in urban areas, they retain strong links with family in their kumusha, or rural homeland, where traditions such as this remain very strong.

Tonderai has established a reputation for astonishingly delicate and intricate work that is also satisfyingly clean and simple. This lovely piece combines great technical skill with fluid, uncluttered lines. More photos are available on request).

Springstone is a dense, impermeable variety of serpentine stone suitable for outdoor display.
