Antony Masamba

Sculptor

“A family who do everything together.”

The love they have for each other unites the family, so they do everything together. Within the sculpture, the swirls represent successive generations. The holes are the individual family members.

This is a beautiful sculpture; from every angle it curves and swoops and glides. Antony is one of the most abstract sculptors that Guruve promotes. His work is outstanding, not just in his creativity and technical ability, but also in his attention to detail. All his pieces are perfectly finished and beautifully polished so that they are wonderful to touch as well as to view.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It has a uniform internal structure with very few flaws. This makes it a perfect medium for more technically challenging sculpture, where the sculptor removes parts of the stone. It is suitable for indoor and outdoor display.
