Peter Chidzonga

Sculptor

The bird cocks its head to one side, watching the ground for prey.

In an interesting departure from his usual precise style, Peter has created a more abstract bird form. Gone are the sharp contrasting textures and beady eyes; instead, we have simplicity and elegance. Somehow, it feels more sophisticated.

This lovely medium-sized sculpture has clean lines and strong silhouette. We think it would be perfect as a focal point for a small garden, or by a pond, perhaps?

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is dense and impermeable and has very few flaws that might be exacerbated by frost action. Therefore, it is suitable for outdoor display even in colder climates.

This variety, with a speckling of paler stone crystals, comes from the Impinge pass through the Great Dyke in northern Zimbabwe. It doesn’t shine to quite such a high gloss as other types of springstone.

Note to potential buyers: if you wish, we can wax over the signature before shipping to make it less intrusive. The chisel marks would be visible, but black rather than white.
