Call Of Africa has donated an amazingOriginal Verdite Sculpture of an elephant titled 'Mazoe' by renowned wildlife Sculptor James Tandi. James continues to amaze collectors and critics alike with his masterful sculptures of Africa's native people and wildlife. Under the tutelage of his older brother, renowned sculptor Nicholas Tandi, James quickly showed a natural talent for sculpting. James works in the classical method using hammer and chisel to beautifully capture the native African people and indigenous wildlife of southern Africa in verdite. Verdite, also known as the 'green stone of Africa' is highly sought after by artists. Only the more experienced sculptor will dare to sculpt from this hard stone. Verdite rates between a 7.0 - 9.0 on the universally used Mohs hardness scale (hardness depends on the amount of Corrundum industrial ruby inclusions in the particular piece of stone). Verdite's color is unique in that it boasts an emerald-looking quality with beautiful brown, blue and green striations. Verdite is fast becoming rare and is difficult to find.
