"Compatible" is a contemporary garden sculpture expressing bonds in relationship and the beauty of dance. Hand carved from one piece of Springstone, Tawanda uses the contrast between the polished and unpolished surfaces to express the two different people. In the rain the unpolished surface will turn dark like the polished side. Once it drys, it will return to the white color. This stunning hand-carved African statue is produced from traditional Springstone. This piece is one of our large garden statues and would make a striking garden feature.

While depictions in African stone sculptures may repeat, the patterns in the Springstone cannot be replicated, making each large garden statue unique. The artist carves the stone using a diamond tipped chisel. It is then sanded for hours through varying degrees of sandpaper until smooth. The sculpture is then heated and a polish is melted into the stone. Finally it is buffered to leave a wonderfully tactile surface, almost irresistible to touch.

Tawanda Makore was born in 1979. Tawanda was inspired at an early age by his sculptor uncle Akence Makore, and later by cubic sculptor Brighton Sango. By the age of 11 years, when his family moved to Matabeleland, Tawanda found a ready market for his work at the Bulawayo National Gallery.He later worked alongside another of his uncles in Guruve, Albert Makore, and was also exposed to the work of many sculptors in the area. He was a member of Sanganai Art Group for some years and more recently has been a founder member of The Sculptors Community.
In 2014 he has plans to visit the Netherlands on a work shop program.Tawanda’s work is generally abstract in form, drawing inspiration from ever changing shapes of his namesake (Makore [Shona]=clouds).
