'My first touch on stone was a human head and I did this at the age of fourteen. The head came out of the idea that came into my minds at a tender age when we used to do mud molding whereby we were making mud vehicles, animals and human heads. So my first ever sculpture on a stone in 1990 was bought by John Deere and this sale inspired me to work on more sculptures. I went on to create ladies figures and Anthony Ponder from America bought the sculptures. Those were happy days because I was at school and I became the richest boy as compared to other students. My classmates were surprised when I bought a stereo radio. Above all, I was the first student to be visited by a white man at school'
Exquisitely executed and crafted in such a way as to lend itself to a windowsill position.
