“Their heads are close together so they can hear what each other says.”

The pair of birds crane their necks and bring their heads together, as if they were whispering to each other. They are a couple sharing secrets. The upwards point represents the spirit of all birds.

Nesbert’s minimalist style, with utter simplicity and clean confident lines, has made him one of Guruve’ most popular artists and this lovely sculpture is another super example.

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.
