This marvellous sculpture of a meerkat exactly captures the upright alertness which is so typical of the species. It is carved from iron wood which is an indigenous hardwood, very challenging to work with, but very rewarding when planed and polished, thanks to its rich colour.
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.

Each art piece is mounted on a stand and there is a choice of a wooden or metal base. All sculptures are fumigated and shipped with a fumigation certificate.
