The two birds are represented merely by the points of their beaks in Nesbert’s typical minimalist style; they raise their heads to the sky to watch for danger.

This is one of the tallest pieces we have from Nesbert this year. It is visually striking from every angle, with strong confident lines and distinctive silhouette. It would make a superb garden centrepiece or focal point.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is suitable for outdoor display, as it is dense and impermeable and has very few flaws that might be exacerbated by frost action. All colouration and texture within the stone is entirely natural, merely enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax. The green lines are veins in the stone – they are entirely natural and are not cracks.

[N.B. the granite slab in the photos is not included. However, we do have some circular granite slabs in either sparkly black or mottled grey available for sale.]
