This impressive sculpture is an abstract representation of a mother and her young child.

The main part of the sculpture (right side and upper part) is the mother; she is bending over and leaning down to her child, arms outstretched. The round hole on the left is her head, but it also her child’s. The child is below left, reaching up its arms to its mother for help. She is lifting the child up, literally, but she is also raising the child to adulthood.

This is the tallest piece we have from Nesbert this year. It is visually striking from every angle, with strong confident lines and distinctive silhouette. It would make a superb garden centrepiece or focal point.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone.  It is dense and impermeable with very few flaws that might be exacerbated by frost action, and is suitable for outdoor display in any climate. The dark veins are natural, they are not cracks or lines of weakness.
