    While depictions in African stone sculptures may repeat, the patterns in the brown Serpentine stone cannot be replicated, making each large garden 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. Enquire today on 0800 772 3253 or get in touch by email,
