“Someone who has an inner light that lights up the room when they enter.”

The roundness reflects a person’s warm and welcoming character, and the central hole shows their inner positive energy that everyone can feel when they are with them.

Tanyanyiwa won the Bernard Matemera Foundation ‘Artist Of The Year’ prize in 2009. His was the most original work, and that individuality continues! There are echoes of Moore and Hepworth in this fascinating piece, but Tanya’s creativity is all his own.

It is also tremendous value for a unique work of art and a fine example of our belief that we should provide art of the highest quality for all budgets.

Springstone is a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is an excellent sculpture medium, as it has a dense internal structure with very few flaws. The lines you can see in the photos are veins in the stone.
