The plant has germinated and is growing upwards vigorously.

A very elegant medium-sized sculpture by one of Zimbabwe’s best young artists. Ishmael’s sculptures encapsulate the simplicity and grace of modern Zimbabwean sculpture.

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

Flower serpentine is the local Zimbabwean name for this exciting new variety of serpentine stone. It is hard, colourful and very diverse – every piece of stone is unique. This variety with its deep red colours is particularly hard, reflected in the slightly textured surface.
