Patience Pays Off – Leon White


1 in stock

Finding a green stone is rare. This Brucite comes in a light green as the sculpture, and darker greens. This is a very hard stone needing to be cut with diamond tools. I first carved a simple two leaf plant form, but this was too boring for me. I decided to carve a general Lizard perched on one leaf. It was pure serendipitous as I was working on the piece, that a small darker green appeared almost in the shape of a butterfly. I decided to carve the butterfly in 3-D to add to the story that the Lizard had found it's meal while patiently waiting.
