The wind catches the tips of the flames, and they lick sideways.

Ishmael’s sculptures, with their clean fluid lines, encapsulate the grace and simplicity of modern Zimbabwean sculpture. This lovely piece is a one-off work of art and, as such, is superb value for money.

All Guruve’s sculptures, regardless of size, are of exceptional quality – they are original, signed works of art in durable stone. It’s our firm belief that customers with less space or limited finances shouldn’t have to compromise on quality.

We have promoted Ishmael since he was a teenager, when we spotted talent in even his earliest work. Ishmael was one of two finalists in the sculpture category of the prestigious National Arts Merit Awards competition, way back in 2008.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is dense, with small grains and a uniform internal structure with very few flaws. As a result, it is a perfect sculpture medium.

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