The breeze catches the bird’s wing feathers, making them dance.

A fascinating and creative abstract sculpture. Nesbert cleverly combines a strong silhouette of a bird in two dimensions with depth created partly through negative space (i.e. where the stone has been removed) and partly from flat stone giving us the idea of a wing. Movement comes as the wing stretches away, hinting at the movement of the tips of the wing feathers in the wind.

Imaginative lighting with an angled spotlight could cast a shadow of the silhouette of the bird’s head, giving the sculpture additional interest.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is has a uniform internal structure with very few flaws. This makes it a perfect medium for more technically challenging sculpture, where the sculptor removes parts of the stone.

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