Lemon Opal Stone (Serpentine)

  • 16cm (h)
  • 21cm (w)
  • 12cm (d)

3kg

A very striking stylised head incorporating Nesbert’s trademark face with its delicate features. Its bold angular lines give it a cubist feel. It is interesting to note that Nesbert’s uncle, the late great Nicholas Mukomberanwa, travelled to Paris and spent some very constructive time with Picasso, and that family history is sometimes echoed in Nesbert’s work.

This lovely little piece is a super example of our philosophy that you should not have to compromise on quality if you have a small budget. It would also make a great gift.

The base is made of springstone (serpentine). It is 11cm diameter and 2cm in height. The total height given above is the height for the sculpture and base combined. The sculpture is pinned and glued to the base.

‘Lemon opal’ stone is the local Zimbabwean name for this hard, bright green variety of serpentine stone; it is of a similar hardness to springstone. The colours in the stone are entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax. It does NOT contain opals, sorry.
