“It is one of those ecstatic moments when loved ones exchange those three little words in a whisper.”

Jetro has captured in stone a private moment between lovers, and given them a gentleness and softness.

Fruit serpentine is the local Zimbabwean name for a very colourful, slightly translucent type of serpentine stone. All the colour is natural, brought out by the polished clear wax coating, and the lines are natural veins in the stone.
