In our African culture, a lot is learnt from our elders and from well wishers. Not all advise is sound advise. At the end of the day, you choose what is best. This is an original one of a kind, hand carved stone sculpture made by one of the master stone sculptors of Zimbabwe.

Lepidolite is one of the most hardest and rarest stone types used to create stone sculptures. It is purple and white in colour and is a member of the mica group of minerals. It is the most abundant lithium-bearing mineral and is a secondary source of this metal. It is a phyllosilicate mineral and a member of the polylithionite-trilithionite series.

Richard Mupumha is amongst one of the international and highly acclaim sculptors and elders in the industry. He currently resides in Chitungwiza and works from the Chitungwiza Arts Centre.
