“Someone who is going through obstacles and reaching the summit.”

The lines twist and turn and continue going, right to the top.

This is a superbly elegant fluid artwork, made from stone with fascinating colour and internal structure.

It’s also a very versatile size – small enough to be a statement piece in an interior space but large enough to display outdoors too.

Our suggestion for indoor display would be to create a focal point, perhaps against a pale backdrop. You can enhance the dramatic effect by picking it out with a spotlight.

To create an impressive centrepiece in a small garden, we suggest a tall narrow plinth. Make the most of the 360° nature of the sculpture, so site it somewhere where you can see it from all sides. Again, if you use a spotlight or two, it will stand out at nighttime too.

Unsurprisingly, this hard variety of serpentine stone has been named ‘avocado’ after its striking green and yellow colouration. The lines you can see are part of the natural serpentine stone – they are not cracks or lines of weakness.
