“It shows the celebrating couple enjoying their wedding anniversary with a dance.”

The curves of the piece indicate the movement of their bodies in the dance. The multiple holes stand for the many years of staying together.

This is a fantastic large sculpture, with interest from every angle; more photos are available on request. It’s the biggest piece we have from Tonderai this year, and would make a super centrepiece for a garden.

As with all Tonderai’s sculptures, this piece has been carved by hand from a single piece of raw stone. All colouration and texture within the stone are entirely natural, merely enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It has a very even internal structure of small grains of rock; it is hard and impermeable and therefore frost-resistant.

This sculpture is suitable for outdoor display, although we would suggest covering it with fleece during very cold weather for peace of mind as some parts of the stone are quite thin.
