This sculpture started out as an idea to make a necklace holder for my husband. I had decided on the piece of wood and was about to saw it when I discovered the strongly coloured smooth curve and the beautiful contrast with the white flint heart. It needed its own base and so I combined the two with a large stone I had found in Scotland years ago. The result is a rocking motion of the sculpture which is visually emphasized by the white root pointing upwards.
