“You have to put in more effort if you want to succeed in your life.”

Each loop represents successive levels of effort and reward. Every time you make a special effort, it lifts you higher until you achieve greatness, represented by the topmost loop.

A very positive message of self-improvement, combined with elegant yet simple form. This is a really eye-catching sculpture, and would make a terrific focal point in a garden setting.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is dense and impermeable; therefore, it is suitable for outdoor display even in colder climates.

This variety of springstone comes from the Impinge pass through the Great Dyke in northern Zimbabwe. It doesn’t shine to quite such a high gloss as other types of springstone, but it is exceptionally hard.
