This is a truly magnificent sculpture by Vernon. Using many techniques to bring texture and color to this piece, the detail is exceptional. Hand carved from Serpentine stone this is a tactile sculpture suitable for inside the home or placed as a garden ornament. Serpentine is far more durable than other traditional African soapstone carvings. the beauty of the Serpentine is that is can be polished to a high finish. Shona sculpture is very collectable and this piece is no exception. Prince Charles is known to be a collector of this art form. As with all of our sculptures, African Masters of Stone provided a certificate of authenticity with all our sculptures.
