Listening To My Lover


Avocado Serpentine

Her head is slightly inclined to show she is listening to what her lover is saying, paying attention to his words.

A lovely small example of Nesbert’s sculpture, with confident sweeping lines and the trademark delicate face. This a great entry-level piece for the budding collector, and would also make a lovely gift.

Bearing Nesbert’s trademark delicate face, and with fluid flowing lines, this is a super example of this well-known second-generation artist’s work. Nesbert is the nephew of the late great Nicholas Mukomberanwa, one of the most influential artists of the ‘Shona sculpture’ art movement.

Unsurprisingly, this hard variety of serpentine stone has been named ‘avocado’ after its striking pale green and yellow colouration; the colours in the stone are entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.
