“We see four people, but there could be more. This piece speaks about the importance of togetherness in the family.”

Family is very important in African society. Here we have a well-balanced composition of mother, father and children, all getting their strength from the unity within the family.

‘Fruit serpentine’ is the local Zimbabwean name for this very colourful, slightly translucent type of serpentine stone.
