The title of the Zimbabwean sculpture is “Responsibility”. The artist is Justice Babhama. The medium is Serpentine, which according to a Google search, is not a single mineral, but rather a group of related minerals. Besides the main members of Antigorite and Chrysotile, as distinction is not usually made between the individual members except under scientific study and classification. It is most often the mineral is a dark green color and is sometimes mottled or spotted like a snake’s skin. This was a part of the ZimSculpt exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum several years ago. I really liked it and I think the title really fits. To me, it looks like an elder is proving a teaching moment to a young person.
