“They are hugging each other in celebration after winning something.”

The two vertical parts of the sculpture represent two people. At the top of the sculpture the lines intertwine, showing they are wrapping their arms around each other. They embrace in celebration – you can envisage them dancing around together.

Unsurprisingly, this hard variety of serpentine stone has been named ‘avocado’ after its striking pale green and yellow colouration. The colours in the stone are entirely natural, merely enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax. The yellow and black lines visible in the photographs are part of the natural serpentine stone. They are not cracks or lines of weakness.

The piece is in the UK and will be shipped from there; P&P at buyer’s expense.
