The front of the head is polished and scrubbed, the sides are grated, the back is made of the original natural stone. Springstone is a hard natural stone from Zimbabwe, when polishing and scrubbing, the main colour is black, with here and there a little brown, and natural veins (green and brown).
Powerful statue, beautifully finished. Can be placed in the garden.

Julius Murenza is a Zimbabwean sculptor, trained by the famous Gregory Mutasa. He has his own sculpting studio, and comes to Europe every year to give sculpting workshops.
