This contemporary abstract stone sculpture is a hand-carved African statue made primarily from Springstone rock. Look closely and you’ll see fish crafted from semi precious stones of Lepidolite and Verdite rock. A stunning piece that would make a wonderful centerpiece in any contemporary setting. This is both delightful to view and to touch.
While depictions in contemporary abstract stone sculpture may repeat, the patterns in the stone cannot be replicated, making each hand-carved African statue unique. The artist carves the stone using a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for hours through varying degrees of sandpaper until smooth. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave a wonderfully tactile surface, almost irresistible to touch.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Many of our sculptures originate from small and sometimes rural sculptor communities in around the capital of Zimbabwe, Harare. This particular piece originated from a small community based in the suburb known as Tengenenge where typically 10-12 artists work together to produce these fantastic pieces of art. It is our vision to see these small communities thrive buy providing a platform on which their sculptures can be sold.
Stone: Springstone, Lapidolite, Verdite
