At 75 years of age, JenetÕs own life is her inspiration in the creation of this beautiful piece. The sculpture is of a woman, whose life has been lived to the fullest. It showcases beauty which cannot be defined by modern standards, and the peace and serenity that comes with longevity.


Every sculpture is made from natural stone and vary slightly due to nature of stone and natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stone will contain inclusions, pits or fissures as a result of its geological formation. The natural recurring iron/seaweed strata lines in the stone give the stone its character and makes it unique.

Natural lines are colorful lines formed within the stone. These are not flaws, but rather signifies the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment.

NOTE: Typically your sculpture will ship within 2-3 days after you've placed your order.
