'Bride' is an original springstone sculpture signed by the Zimbabwean artist Brian Nehumba. Brian was trained in the Shona stone carving tradition and this is an excellent example of his work, combining abstract and human forms. The sculpture takes the form of an elegant woman with long hair and graceful arms. she stands, but leans to the side in the shape of a whiplash curve. In her hand, she holds a bowl, suggesting the celebration of her nuptuals. Brian plays with the texture of the springstone, bringing the body of the bird to a high and deep polish while leaving parts of the stone perch rough-hewn. springstone 30 x 14 x 7.5 inches signed "Nehumba B" along bottom edge on proper right acquired directly from the artist overall good condition with some scattered minor scratches
