“Two birds playing together.”

One bird is underneath looking up; the other hovers above looking down. Their elegant movements look like a dance, but it’s just a game.

Nesbert’s minimalist style, with utter simplicity and clean confident lines, has made him one of Guruve’s most popular artists. His confidence as a sculptor shines through with these elegant curves, making this a very striking piece.

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.
