Agate Elephant - STOLEN!! (Havelock North)
Sculptor: Farah Tandi
Dimensions: 55cm high, 20cm wide, 20cm deep
UNFORTUNATELY THIS PIECE WAS STOLEN OUT OF OUR GARDEN ON THE NIGHT OF THE 17TH AUGUST, 2021. THE POLICE ARE WORKING ON IT, BUT IF ANYONE KNOWS THE WHEREABOUTS OF THIS SCULPTURE WE ARE OFFERING A SUBSTANTIAL REWARD.
Farai Tandi is one of only a very few stone artists that work with semi-precious stones of this size. This piece is pure agate and is worth its weight and more just by its very nature of stone makeup. Agate is an extremely hard stone to work with and Farai took almost two weeks to carve and polish this piece to its level of finish. This is a lovely and most unusual sculpture and would look magnificent in the right home or garden.
