“Sound drifting through the air, dancing in your ear.”

We added Willard to Guruve’s gallery of Zimbabwean sculptors just two years ago, and we think his work is exceptional.

Willard’s use of simple flowing lines keeps the sculpture feeling fluid and uncluttered and allows the viewer to enjoy the elegant form of the piece and the incredible internal colour of the stone.

This piece would make a real statement as a garden centrepiece.

Unsurprisingly, this hard variety of serpentine stone has been named ‘avocado’ after its striking green and yellow colouration. It is suitable for outdoor display, though we would recommend covering it with fleece during very cold weather for peace of mind.

The colours in the stone are entirely natural, merely enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.┬áThe lines you can see are part of the natural serpentine stone – they are not cracks or lines of weakness.
