Tonderai describes this piece ‘Shared History’ as representing:
“Two people who are bonded together by a shared past; they have known each other for many years, since childhood. Their lives are interconnected and tied together by all their shared memories and experiences.”
Tonderai was a new artist for Guruve a few years ago, and his work has been a massive hit. It is almost inconceivable that such delicate and intricate work could be done by hand.
As with all Tonderai’s sculptures, this piece was carved by hand from a single piece of raw stone.
This beautiful stone is a rediscovered variety of serpentine. All the beautiful colouration within the stone is entirely natural; the artist has applied clear wax to reveal the depth of colour within.
