Sculpted from Serpentine Stone. Serpentine distinguishes itself by its fine structure, and very variable degree of hardness. Its color hues range from black to green. The color is determined by the composition of the minerals and differs from side to side. This type of rock is about 2.6 million years old and is found in great deposits throughout Zimbabwe. The working of the stone is pure manual labor, after the rough carving of the form, with a chipping hammer, the proper shaping is done, with hammer and/or mallet and different chisels. The work gets its first rough polish with different rasps and files. For a smooth polish of the sculpture sand paper is used. After grinding, the sculpture is heated at a wood fire, so that the pores of the stone open up. After that wax is applied with a brush and, after cooling down the surplus wax, which has not penetrated into the sculpture is carefully polished with a soft cloth to produce a piece of art to be cherished. Each piece emits, warmth, soothing to the touch, and refines any room. This sculpture makes a unique gift, or decorative accessory for your home or office.
