Mopane wood is a favourite of Boniface Chikwenhere who understands the unique appeal of the contrasting colours and warm glow of the wood when polished. Although mopane can be challenging to work with, as it is a famous hardwood, this sculpture of a bird demonstrates both the beautiful grain and Boni's technical skill as can be seen by the polished curve of the beak and the blond wood of the body. Custom designed metal legs ensure the sculpture stands with perfect balance.
Each one-of-a-kind sculpture is inspired by the character of the found wood, Boniface seeing his mission as completing nature's work and revealing the animal form that he sees emerging from the grain of the wood. Often the wood is left raw in part of the finished piece, the natural and polished surfaces making a harmonious whole.

All sculptures are fumigated and shipped with a fumigation certificate.
