Please note the weight is an estimate.

Granite is an incredibly hard crystalline stone and is very difficult to work. Joe made this amazing sculpture at a granite-sculpting workshop held at the Chapungu Sculpture Park in Harare in 1998. Two guest artists from Japan lead the workshop and taught the participating artists various techniques for working with this challenging material.

The resulting artwork is one of the most significant statement pieces Joe Mutasa has ever created.

Clearly, it is suitable for outdoor display in all climates.
