The hole in the centre illustrates the action that happens in the middle of a whirlpool as the swirling motion sucks the water down.

A wonderfully balanced and harmonious sculpture, here Tonderai keeps his work relatively simple to great effect.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. It is dense and has very few flaws, and is therefore the perfect medium for Tonderai’s technically challenging style.
