The lines of the sculpture follow the movement of a gymnast as they tumble through the air.

This is a striking sculpture that epitomises the work of the best of the young generation of Zimbabwean sculptors. It is simple and clean, with graceful sweeping lines. Each angle gives a new and interesting viewpoint, and the photographs struggle to do it justice.

This piece belongs to a collector and is being sold through Guruve. It is in the UK and will be shipped from there.
