“Diamond Torso” is a unique interpretation hand carved from Springstone. Springstone is the hardest of the stones used by the Shona sculptors. In fact, so hard, that the artist uses a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for literally hours through varying degrees of sand paper until the artist reaches 2500 grade sand paper. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave this wonderfully tactile surface.

 

Perhaps the perfect ornament to fill that special space. Or maybe a different kind of gift for that special someone or occasion. The sculpture is suitable for inside or outside the home, requiring minimal care.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Garison began his love of sculpture after he met his relative the famous sculptor Tapfuma Gutsa. They worked together from around 1986. Garison had to start from the bottom up by sanding and polishing stone until he became an independent sculptor. Garison was part of the resident programme at Chapungu Sculpture Park and through this exposure his art has now been exhibited in many exhibitions. His list of venues where his work has been shown includes OXO Gallery London and as far as Australia also the USA.
