The two uprights represent two people who share a project or business. Sometimes they struggle, but they know the potential benefits of the business, so they agree to give it another chance.

Charles Kowo makes a welcome return to Guruve’s gallery this year. There are some exceptional pieces from him in our 2022 collection of Shona sculpture.

We named this hard variety of serpentine stone ‘avocado’ after its striking pale green and yellow colouration. It is suitable for outdoor display, though we would recommend covering it with fleece during very cold weather for peace of mind.

The colours in the stone are entirely natural, merely enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax. The lines you can see are part of the natural serpentine stone – they are not cracks or lines of weakness.

This piece is in the UK and will be shipped from there;
P&P at buyer’s expense.
