"Holding You Close"

William Chewa

  • Welcome to our online art gallery where we present to you "Holding You Close," a captivating modern abstract garden sculpture by William Chewa. This sculpture is part of his renowned "Expressions of Love" collection and is a true masterpiece.

    Crafted by hand from exquisite Lemon Opal stone, this garden sculpture boasts an unparalleled uniqueness. Unlike other sculptures, the intricate patterns found within the Serpentine stone used in this piece cannot be replicated. The stone is also semi-translucent, revealing an enchanting glimpse of minerals embedded within it.

    The rich red/brown hue of this sculpture is achieved by leaving one side unpolished, allowing for a stunning contrast and versatile display. "Holding You Close" can be admired from both sides or positioned to create an entirely new perspective in your garden.

    While depictions in African stone sculptures may repeat, the patterns in the Lemon Opal 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,
