"Wishing to have good fortune and move upwards in life."

Moving upwards from a relatively simple base, the sculpture becomes more expansive and dynamic.

Willard is a new addition to Guruve's gallery of Zimbabwean sculptors this year, as we think his work is exceptional - confident fluid movement in work of elegant simplicity.

Unsurprisingly, this hard variety of serpentine stone has been named 'avocado' after its striking pale green and yellow colouration; the colours in the stone are entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.
