These solid stone beetles are hand-carved in Zimbabwe from springstone and verdite, then outfitted with recycled metal legs. Each is completely one-of-a-kind due to the variety of inclusions and color tones in the stone.
Measures 2.5"L x 2.5"W x 1"T. Size may vary slightly. Not intended for outdoor display.
Zimbabwean artist Luke Jimu works with springstone, which is a prized dark stone that polishes to a high shine because of its density. Most springstone is sustainably sourced and is mined on communal lands for the purpose of sculpting.
