A person speaking – the whole round sculpture is their head, the lower open space is their mouth as they whisper out of the corner of their mouth and the upper space is their eyes looking around.

Tanya’s distinctive style, reminiscent of Hepworth and Moore, marks him out as one of Zimbabwe’s finest young sculptors.

This hard variety of serpentine stone has been named ‘avocado’ after its striking green and yellow colouration. The colours and texture within the stone are entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.
