A celebration of a family gathering – the leaves reaching up tall into the air represent the family coming together, waving their hands with joy. The flowers at the bottom represent the heads of the people together.

It is traditional in Zimbabwe for women to ululate when people come together for a celebration – and of course, it’s impossible to ululate without dancing and waving your arms in the air!

This tremendous piece is a real 360° sculpture, with interest from every angle, and the limited number of photographs make it hard to do it justice. More pictures are available on request.

This is the tallest piece we have available by Onias. It would be a perfect garden centrepiece, particularly given its organic style.

Springstone is the local name for a hard variety of serpentine stone. This sculpture is suitable for outdoor display, although we would recommend covering it during very cold weather, for peace of mind, as some parts of the stone are quite thin.

Please note the weight is an estimate. This sculpture is in Zimbabwe and will be shipped from there; P&P at  buyer’s expense. Please contact us for a shipping quote giving your nearest airport and sea port if you are tempted.
