This sculpture is part of a private collection of 35 sculptures purchased in the early 1980s from Tengenenge Art Gallery from the First Generation Artists. Our client is willing to consider all serious offers on individual pieces or the collection as a whole.

 

This piece was acquired in the early 1980’s from Tengenenge Art Village in Zimbabwe directly from Tom Bloomfield and was subsequently loaned to the Zimbabwean Embassy in Japan, for a long-term exhibit at the Tokyo Okura Hotel. This is an outstanding piece from an artist that was largely responsible for encouraging the Shona sculpture movement to use harder stones.

 

This is piece has been verified by the Tengenenge Art Gallery as being authentic and is supplied with a signed certificate by Dominic Benhura, the now director at Tengenenge.
