The owl has its head on its side – the circles are its eyes with the pointy beak between them. The eyes are wide open, it’s hunting.

Ishmael’s sculptures encapsulate the simplicity and grace of modern Zimbabwean sculpture. This lovely piece is superb value for money, and just goes to show that you don’t need a massive budget for an original work of art.

All the colouration in this serpentine stone is entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of
clear wax.
