Peter Chidzonga

Sculptor

Out in the bush, far from human disturbance, the love birds perform a courtship dance where male and female touch beaks to reinforce their bond.

Peter has used a number of sculpting techniques to create the various contrasting finishes on this lovely elegant sculpture. He achieves the brushed effect of the feathers by stroking the stone with a blunt rasp. To create the shiny parts, he sands the stone smooth, then heats it and applies clear wax.

Sculptures of this size are very versatile and work equally well indoors or out. In fact, you could display it outside during summer and then bring it inside for winter, when you are indoors much more anyway.

If the textured surface gets some greenery growing on it, you can easily wash this off with some water and a scrubbing brush. The sculpture itself won’t be affected.
