A bird raises its wings to perform a dance for a prospective partner. He is at the peak of his physical health, and wants to display his finery to impress her.

This piece captures the essence of a bird in simple and elegant form. Nesbert’s minimalist style, with its utter simplicity and clean confident lines, has made him one of Guruve’s most popular artists.

This variety of serpentine stone, known as springstone, is dense and hard, with small grains and very few flaws. Therefore, it’s a perfect sculpture medium. This is especially so for technically challenging works such as this, where the artist removes much of the stone and leaves a delicate shape.

The dark subtle veins in the stone are entirely natural, and they are not flaws or lines of weakness.
