“We all have beautiful moments caused by nature which we should try to capture to keep on enjoying life.”

A captured moment – it takes an artist or a photographer to freeze the moment when something happens in nature. Hair lifted by the breeze, the sunlight through the trees, the splash of water… Tutani is observing that every day is made up of a myriad of tiny moments of beauty, and that we can move through them unawares unless they are captured by a photograph (or in this case a sculpture) and brought to our full attention.

Tutani has used a number of sculpting techniques to create the various contrasting finishes on this lovely sculpture. It is very easy to light sculptures with this matt white surface, so with clever use of spotlights you can enjoy it at night as well!

Springstone is the local name for a very hard variety of serpentine stone. It is suitable for outdoor display, as it is dense and impermeable and has very few flaws that might be exacerbated by frost action.
