“Many lines going around, going through each other, showing the true narration of success.”

This stunning sculpture really has the WOW! factor. It would be perfect as a garden centrepiece, with its elegant fluid lines. It’s the biggest and most impressive piece we have ever had from Willard.

Willard is one of Shona Sculpture Gallery’s most popular contemporary Zimbabwean sculptors.¬†He lives in the rural north of Zimbabwe. Luckily for him, this lovely colourful variety of serpentine is found very close to his home.

Avocado serpentine, named for its green and yellow colouring, is very hard and impermeable. As a result, it is naturally frost-resistant and can be displayed outdoors – even in temperate climates.

Imperial measurements are: 76 3/8″ (h) x 35 1/2″ (w) x 26″ (d) and 1,140lbs.

Overseas shipping is from Zimbabwe via air or sea freight;
P&P at buyer’s expense.

Please note freight is as cargo to your nearest port; you would need to engage the services of a clearing agent to do customs clearance and arrange onward haulage to your delivery address. This isn’t as complicated as it might sound, and using an agent is definitely better than trying to do it yourself.

If you’d like a freight quote, please email us¬†giving your nearest airport and/or sea port along with your contact details.

Unsurprisingly, freight from Zimbabwe can be expensive. Therefore, as a rough guideline, we would advise you budget approximately $5,000 for the shipping costs.
