“A group of people coming together for discussions.”

The waves represent people are getting their heads together; the whole form of the circle represents the community reaching a unified decision.

This piece reflects the consensual style of African decision-making. People will go to great lengths to find a solution to conflict that pleases all parties and avoids escalation.

So simple but powerful, the best of contemporary Zimbabwean sculpture holds its own on an international stage. This is especially true when the inspiration for the work expresses aspects of Shona culture or beliefs, making the story behind the sculpture so intriguing.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is has a uniform internal structure with very few flaws. This makes is 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.
