Eve, Mother of us All by Sabudu Jamari (Zimbabwe)
Imposing, regal image of a mother with multiple children, most notably a daughter hugging her waist and an infant in her arms. Small figures appear on her robe, front and back, as well as palm trees and a rising sun. Carved from spring stone, the third hardest mineral in Zimbabwe by the talented Mr. Jamari. Springstone is black or greenish black when polished and waxed, and it has mild grain and veining but usually lacks any serious flaws, which avoids breakage during the shaping. Lovely, smooth finish. Insured when shipped. This piece may not be combined with other purchases.
