The grasshopper is a symbol of good luck and abundance. It represents the ability to take chances, move on hunches and make uncanny leaps forward. Progress is not always step-by-step, but can be extremely fast. Trust your own instincts on when to make the leaps.

About the artist:
The Improved Arts Metal Sculpture Project was started in 1986 by five brothers. Having discovered their artistic talents, they founded the group to depict African natural history through metalwork and to make a better living. Old tin cans and other scraps of metal from businesses in the industrial area of Harare are turned into these delightful sculptures by these artists using snips, pliers, and hammers.
